R.E Statement of Intent
At Stanton Bridge Primary School, our Religious Education curriculum intent is to explore different religious beliefs, values, traditions and practices that are followed in our multi-cultural society that our pupils live in. We want our pupils to know how religious education promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice, preparing them for adult life, employment and life-long learning.
We intend our children to do the following:
- Articulate with respect and to voice their beliefs
- Have respect
- Have confidence
- Have self-worth
- Have knowledge of different faiths
- Appreciate and celebrate positive commonalities in faiths
We are delighted to introduce the new joint Coventry and Warwickshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2017 to our school. The syllabus builds on the strengths of previous documents and offers innovative ideas to enable our school to provide creative, challenging and thought-provoking Religious Education.
Good Religious Education makes a positive contribution to the learning of pupils. This agreed syllabus will enable pupils through RE to develop their knowledge and skills to prepare them for life in a modern, diverse Britain and in a plural world. It is structured so that pupils are challenged to think rigorously and creatively, to make informed judgements and to understand that it is acceptable to have doubts and to disagree in a reasoned and sensitive way. In the process they can examine and reflect upon a range of questions about spirituality and identity, morality, values and commitments.
Living in and growing up in the world of the 21st century will challenge all pupils. RE is important to help pupils to become literate and articulate about religions and beliefs, and to be thoughtful members of society. In learning from religion they are able to make informed choices about how they want to live their lives whilst also understanding more about the faith of other people they meet. RE is therefore relevant to every pupil and every citizen of Coventry and Warwickshire.
Below is the RE curriculum overview for the whole school.
On 18/2/2020 Year 4 visited Birmingham Central Synagogue. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide who taught us about Jewish celebrations. We saw a Torah and we learnt about Passover, the boys even got to wear a Kippah. We look forward to applying our knowledge to our RE lessons.
