Working Together for Excellence and Enjoyment

Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) is taught in accordance with Shropshire’s Agreed Syllabus using a multi-faith approach, whilst keeping the Christian faith at the forefront of our ethos which encourages reflection on the way we behave towards one another.

 

Collective Worship - Assemblies are held daily, and are either whole school or Key Stage One or Key Stage Two. Stories are shared which promote a knowledge and understanding of the diversity of the world values of caring for our world and each other. Our assemblies give opportunities for children to reflect on a spiritual and personal level and also celebrate achievements both in and out of school. 
Through a wide exploration of religious beliefs and practices we hope the children will gain a deepening insight into other religions as well as their own.


The following religions are studied:

  •  Foundation Stage – children have the opportunity to explore key questions about life and relate these to a range of different religions.
  • Key Stage One – children learn about the practices and rituals of different religions through a thematic approach.
  • Key Stage Two – four major world religions are studied in depth throughout the Key Stage
  • Year 3 – Judaism
  • Year 4 – Islam
  • Year 5 – Sikhism
  • Year 6 - Buddhism

The areas covered are done in a 2 year rolling program. Year A and Year B.
