Why do WE TEACH RE?

At Wescott Infant School the Religious Education programme is designed to encourage pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging, provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development and enable pupils to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own.

WHAT IS THE AIM OF OUR CURRICULUM FOR RE?

The aim of teaching RE at Wescott Infant School is to:

  • Develop the pupil’s knowledge and understanding of people’s beliefs, values and practices.
  • Enable the pupil’s own social, moral, cultural and social development.
  • Develop the pupil’s respect and sensitivity towards other people’s beliefs, practices and values.

wHAT DO WE TEACH IN OUR RE CURRICULUM?

 Wescott Infant School RE curriculum ensures that every year group encounters Christianity plus one other religion from Hinduism, Islam, Judaism & Sikhism.

FS – Key Religious Stories

Yr1 – Christianity + Judaism

Yr2 – Christianity + Islam

The curriculum is based on key enquiry questions which are linked to three elements of “Belonging, Believing and Behaving” ensuring that children ‘learn about’ and ‘learn from’.

This is achieved through both class based and experiential lessons, engaging with representatives from local faith groups and parents and families in the school community who are invited into school.
