It is our intent that Religious Education inspires, engages and challenges pupils. We aim to equip learners with the knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions and explore different religions, beliefs, traditions and practices. We want Religious Education to enable pupils to combat prejudice, live well with others and develop skills for lifelong learning.
The Implementation of the School’s programme of study for RE is in accordance with ‘The Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Cornwall 2020.’ All religions and their communities are treated with respect and sensitivity and we value the links that can be made between home, school and a faith community. We acknowledge that each religion studied can contribute to the education of all our pupils. We promote teaching in Religious Education that stresses open enquiry and first-hand experiences wherever possible for both staff and children.
Our Religious Education Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. The syllabus is implemented in school through a sensory approach, where children may look at and handle religious artefacts, hear religious music or taste food from a religious tradition.
