Religious Education (RE)

Religious Education (R.E.)

 

“As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall.” Ram Dass

Intent:

At Kingsmoor, we intend for our children to understand, value and respect the richness of the religious diversity within our school, our community, our country and our world. Through enquiry and exploration, children develop knowledge of different faiths and an understanding of the people who practice them. This sows the seeds for the children’s personal understanding of faith and religion to grow, enabling them to think critically and discuss world-views confidently. As they move through the school, knowledge learnt in RE is linked to different areas of the curriculum, and deepened through other areas of school life such as our strong school values.

 

Implementation:

Mrs. Sorrell is our R.E. subject-lead teacher. Religious Education is taught in class lessons, but is also evident throughout school life, for example through assemblies, our values ethos and celebrations of religious festivals of different faiths throughout the year. We have strong links with local churches, who regularly visit school to share their Christian faith, and have also supported both staff and children at important times for Kingsmoor. We are actively exploring developing similar links with other religious communities locally. At Kingsmoor we follow the R.E. Agreed Syllabus 2018-2023 for Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton. The table below shows which R.E. topics are taught throughout the school.

Impact: We are proud that Kingsmoor children’s knowledge and understanding of world faiths is evident in the informed, articulate and considered way they can talk about their learning. Children’s understanding of RE is assessed by class teachers in every lesson, either informally through discussion and practical activities, or more formally through pieces of work the children have done. As subject-lead, Mrs Sorrell oversees the assessment and impact of children’s learning, to ensure our children continue to benefit from high-quality Religious Education, preparing them for their future in our multi-cultural society.
