RE Curriculum

Intent 

At Crook Primary we are committed to ensuring that all children are provided with stimulus and questions that allow them to explore their own beliefs whilst acknowledging  and respecting that other people might hold different beliefs to them. We want them to have an understanding of the numerous religious traditions, beliefs and practices that are followed in our multi- cultural society and around the world. We want to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions so that they can combat prejudice, make connections  and prepare them for adult life.

 

Implementation

The Agreed  Durham Religious  Education Syllabus is the basis of our curriculum. RE will be taught in a block each term so that children can deepen their understanding.In addition we will have focus RE themed days.

Impact

Children will be assessed at the end of each year so that they will be deemed to have met age related expectations or not.

Through the study of RE children will increase their long term knowledge and form considered opinions about the world in which they live and to be able to respect the beliefs of others as well as their own.  They will also understand how religion plays an important part in shaping the  identity of different cultures.
