RE Curriculum

RE Curriculum

Every child is entitled to weekly RE lessons to learn about the Christian faith and other major faiths of our day. Our intent statement reads as follows:

The intent of our RE curriculum is to engage children with the major faiths of our day: what is believed across our city, country and the wider world. We want our children to be genuinely intrigued by how faith impacts upon the lives of believers, both today and in the past, and to consider what relevance such faith may have to us today in the 21st century.  We encourage our children to listen sincerely to the viewpoints of others and, by drawing comparisons with their own lives, show empathy to those whose worldview may be very different to their own.  We believe that with greater understanding comes greater tolerance for the life, culture, freedom and faith of others.

We follow the Awareness, Mystery and Values syllabus (AMV) which is supported by the C of E approved resource, Understanding Christianity. 

Children are taught what the adherents of the major faiths believe and also what we can learn from their faith, and the similarities and differences between the faiths.
