Religious Education

RE Intent

  • The teaching of RE at St Faith’s is the beginning of our children’s journey to religious literacy, the aim of which is to empower them with a thorough understanding of the core concepts within a range of religions.

 

Implementation of RE

  • We aim to encourage our children to remember knowledge and build on their prior learning by ensuring we carefully consider how knowledge is sequenced in order to make progress.
  • Teachers must understand what pupils must know and be able to do in each subject by the end of each academic year; they must recognise what has come before and what pupils will continue to learn in the next year.
  • Our curriculum is based on the view that learning is most effective when spaced rather than blocked and previous learning is constantly reviewed and revisited in order to consolidate learning and make progress.
  • Most of the content is subject specific due to the nature of the core beliefs within religious beliefs.
  • RE is taught through the three elements of
  1. what people believe (theology)
  2. how people live their lives in accordance with their beliefs (social sciences)
  3. examination and evaluation of the connections between ideas and the wider world (philosophy).
  • Teachers assess children in their class and provide learning opportunities to ensure progression in RE in line with Development Matters (Understanding the World) and the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus.

 

Impact

  • Children will have good knowledge and understanding of Christianity and Islam (through the lens of theology, social science and philosophy) and will be able to articulate this.
  • Children will show good progress in all areas of RE as they move through the school.
  • Children will have an understanding of the beliefs of some people and will have an understanding of why they engage in certain religious and daily practices.
  • Children will be inspired and excited about the learning of RE, and will see themselves as knowledgeable in religion.
