Stoneraise School seeks to provide a rich Religious Education (RE) Curriculum which prepares our children for life in modern Britain.
RE is key to helping young people grow up in today's multi-faith, diverse and connected world. RE aims to give pupils opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of religion and beliefs and to contribute to the development of their own beliefs and values. Everyone has their unique view of the world and RE is about exploring these views.
We follow Cumbria's Agreed Syllabus as the basis for our RE teaching and learning. You can download a copy here. We use Discovery RE as a scheme of work for our RE teaching. It adopts an enquiry based approach to teaching and learning. Christianity is taught in every year group, with Christmas and Easter given new treatment each year, developing the learning in a progressive way. Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism are also covered. Humanist perspectives are added when appropriate in some enquiries. Each enquiry unit demands the equivalent of 6 lessons, but teaching time could be blocked over perhaps 3 half days to enhance learning. Each enquiry has a learning objective which shows the learning over the enquiry and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout as is each enquiry’s contribution to the British Values agenda.
