Religious Education

Intent

At East Hunsbury Primary School, Religious Education plays a key role in developing our children’s knowledge and understanding of the diversity of world views and belief systems. Our curriculum is aspirational, enabling and inclusive and it is our intention that it equips children with the skills to question, discuss and explore the cultures and beliefs of society.

We believe that it is particularly important to broaden children’s understanding and so prepare them to meet those who have different cultures and beliefs and to understand and develop acceptance and tolerance for those whose beliefs are different to themselves. At East Hunsbury Primary School, we consistently develop children’s spiritual, moral, cultural and social education helping them to have a greater understanding of their place in the world.

At East Hunsbury Primary School, it is our intention that our Religious Education curriculum will:

  • Expand children’s knowledge and understanding of the six main religions.
  • Enable children to develop religious literacy by exploring and understanding religion and beliefs
  • Teach children to reflect and discuss diversity and values.
  • Develop in every child a rich, deep knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs and practices providing a secure foundation that will enable them to succeed as they move to their next stage of education.
  • Promote tolerance, understanding and dispel prejudice to enable our children to be able to live, work and socialise in the wider community.

At East Hunsbury Primary School, our RE Curriculum aims to ensure that all children:

  • Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of the diversity of world views and belief systems
  • Develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities and society
  • Develop respect for others who hold different views and beliefs from their own
  • Acquire skills to question, discuss and evaluate information and form their own opinions
