At Worth Primary School, we follow the Cheshire East Locally Agreed Syllabus. We equip pupils with knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities. Pupils develop an aptitude for dialogue so that they can participate positively in society with its diverse religions and secular worldviews.
From ‘Understanding the World’ in the EYFS Framework, our pupils begin their journey through personal, social and emotional development.
Our curriculum for RE aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Describe, explain, evaluate and analyse beliefs and practices, recognising the diversity which exists within and between communities and amongst individuals.
- Appreciate and appraise the nature, significance and impact of different ways of life and ways of expressing meaning.
- Explain reasonably their ideas about how beliefs, practices and forms of expression influence individuals and communities.
- Express with increasing discernment their personal reflections and critical responses to questions and teachings about identity, diversity, meaning and value, including ethical issues.
- Find out about and investigate key concepts and questions of belonging, meaning, purpose and truth, responding creatively.
- Enquire into what enables different individuals and communities to live together respectfully for the wellbeing of all.
- Articulate beliefs, values and commitments clearly in order to explain why they may be important in their own and other people’s lives.
By the end of KS2, pupils gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts, sources of wisdom and authority and other evidence. They learn to articulate their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.
