The teaching of Religious Education follows the Blackburn Diocesan Agreed Syllabus. The schemes of work provides pupils with a broad religious and moral education. We have an 80% focus on Christianity and 20% focus on other world religions. We feel that it is really important for our children to learn about and learn from all world religions. The teaching and learning of RE encourages a sense of respect and tolerance to one another, which links to our school values and is embedded in the fabric of everything our children and staff do.
While RE is taught discretely we have mini whole school themes with an RE focus such as 'Harvest' and 'Holy Week'. Some classes may be able to explore aspects of Christianity or other religions in their chosen curriculum themes.
The children explore religion by expressing their own experiences and feelings through worship, discussions, writing, art, drama and singing. Take a look at some of the work we have been learning about and from in our lessons!
