Within the framework of the law and the Agreed Syllabus, the aims in RE at North Frodingham Primary school are for pupils to:
- acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in the United Kingdom;
- develop an understanding of the influence of religious and non-religious worldviews, values and traditions on individuals, communities, societies and cultures, locally, nationally and globally;
- develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues, with reference to the teachings and diversity within the religious and non-religious worldviews represented in the United Kingdom;
- know about and understand Christianity as a diverse global living faith through the exploration of core beliefs using an approach that critically engages with biblical text.
- gain knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews appreciating diversity, continuity and change within the religions and worldviews being studied.
- engage with challenging questions of meaning and purpose raised by human existence and experience.
- recognise the concept of religion and its continuing influence on Britain’s cultural heritage and in the lives of individuals and societies in different times, cultures and places.
At North Frodingham Primary School, we believe that our children are entitled to develop a deep understanding of Christianity, alongside building respect for other world faiths.
Therefore, our RE curriculum is fundamental to our vision BELONG; ‘Caring, Sharing, Together Learning’.
The children at North Frodingham School learn about religion through exploring key religious texts, stories and celebration of festivals from a range of religions.
Our curriculum explores the values and traditions of communities represented in the United Kingdom. Our aim is to provide children with a moral compass to navigate an ever-changing world.
We provide them with the tools necessary to explore their own spirituality and enable them to engage with challenging questions that develop their understanding of human existence.
RE lessons are planned using the East Riding of Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus which allows for continuity and progression throughout the school.
A progression of skills has been mapped for each year group and is used to ensure that children have opportunities to build upon prior learning.
Class books are used to evidence discussion, exploration and progression; whilst individual books document individual learning and understanding.
Daily assemblies allow children opportunities for collective worship, spiritual reflection and to share in the school community.
RE is taught using a variety of strategies such as drama, art, thinking skills, speaking and listening, ICT and other active methods.
Key festivals are celebrated within the wider community alongside St Leonard’s Church.
Through our RE curriculum, children will be able to explore diversity and investigate the mysteries of the world.
Children will build their own spiritual and moral development and will feel confident to ask and explore questions they may have.
Outcomes for each child are recorded at the end of a unit of work and regularly throughout the year and analysed for next steps.
