RELIGIOUS EDUCATION at All Saints CEVA Primary School & Nursery
The RE curriculum is determined by the local Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE), which is responsible for producing the locally agreed syllabus for RE. Agreed Syllabuses used in schools. Schools with a religious designation may prioritise one religion in their RE curriculum, but all schools must recognise diverse religions and systems of belief in he UK both locally and nationally.
We use the Northamptonshire agreed syllabus and because we are a Church of England, Voluntary Aided school prioritise Christianity whilst covering all the faiths below.
- Humanist and Atheist view-points are also considered
Learning about a religion as well as learning from are approached through enquiry and investigation. Visits, visitors, faith days and various classroom experiences, like drama, art and music are used as ways to inspire and engage the children who are encouraged to reflect their learning in as many forms as they choose.
RE has an important contribution to make towards this by providing a caring environment where children feel secure and able to express their views and beliefs. They are encouraged to value their own opinions, whilst developing respect and sensitivity for the views of others. Pupils are encouraged to understand the importance of the role that each individual has to play in the life of the school and of the wider community. Links are made with a variety of faith groups to help develop this aim.
We send out an RE newsletter at the beginning of the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms. These give you an overview of what the focus will be so you can support your child as they investigate and learn about faiths in our community.
