How we will teach RE

We will use the Kirklees syllabus to deliver the RE curriculum. Students will have opportunities to visit places of worship from different faiths and we will also invite religious leaders into school. Students will also learn that many people do not follow a faith and this will also be explored. 

RE makes a powerful contribution to young people’s learning, providing them with the opportunity to explore big questions about being human, of religion and belief, and their values and ways of living which are important to them. We will not be afraid to ask big questions and we will ensure our school is a safe place to express opinions and learn from others who might have a different point of view.

The act of collective worship will be an integral part of the life of the school and will be given a high priority. It will allow students opportunity to reflect and respond to local, national and world issues as well as to develop a growing understanding of different faith and humanist groups. Collective worship will also provide an opportunity to address the school community in teaching about British values. Students will celebrate special occasions with each other.

Our RE and daily collective worship opportunities will contribute to a deep culture of sensitivity, cooperation and respect. Students will articulate their views, feelings and responsibilities in an unscripted and confident way, which will reflect the genuine nature of the school ethos.

 In providing high quality provision of Religious Education, we know students will:

  • develop self-confidence about our own beliefs and identity without fear of embarrassment.
  • become aware of the impact of our ideas and behaviour on others.
  • develop listening skills and a willingness to learn from others.
  • value difference and diversity, and be prepared to recognise bias.
  • engage in respectful and reasonable disagreement.
  • ask questions about the meaning and purpose of life.
  • develop curiosity and imagination.
  • engage with the idea of mystery and wonder.
