As a Voluntary Aided Church of England primary school, RE is a central and important part of our curriculum.
RE is taught as a discrete subject in both classes. In Class 1 pupils are taught RE in both EYFS and in KS1. In Class 2 pupils are currently split into Year 3&4 and Year 5&6 groups, a change we have made to address the amount of coverage in our RE curriculum and to allow for clear progression of skills and knowledge between years.
Our RE teaching places a strong emphasis on the teaching of Christianity, as per the 2019 CE Statement of Entitlement, however we try to provide a balanced overview of several other religions to ensure pupils experience and explore a range of diverse worldviews and perspectives.
We use Blackburn Diocese’s Questful RE resources alongside projects from Curriculum Maestro to achieve this balance.
