    Curriculum Intent 

    Our intent in Religious Education is to ensure all pupils are taught the knowledge, skills and vocabulary appropriate to their year group focussing on the key end points.

    Curriculum statement

    In Religious Education (RE), we consider and pose challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, nature of reality, issues of life and death, concepts of right and wrong and what it means to be human. Children learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts. We aim to discover, explore and consider different answers to such questions posed. Children learn from different sources, having opportunities to develop and express their own viewpoints and responses as well as to respectfully agree or disagree to views held by others. We use the British Values to help us when learning about RE, particularly to ensure we show mutual respect and tolerance to other people, faiths and beliefs.

    RE contributes to other curricular areas, offering many skills and opportunities to develop learning through a range of approaches. We are very fortunate to have such close links to the Sound and Broomhall Chapel. We work with the Chapel to plan lots of events to celebrate Christian festivals and events such as Harvest, learning about the Nativity and Easter for the whole school. They plan wonderful activities specifically for children in Year Two (Hope Journey) as well as for the Year Five children to further develop their learning about Easter.

    RE is taught to every class each week. Our school RE curriculum is based on Cheshire East’s Agreed Syllabus.

    You have the right by law to withdraw your child from collective worship or religious education. If you wish to do so you should speak to the Head Teacher.
