Religious Education Curriculum Intent

Religious Education Curriculum Intent

To spark curiosity and tolerance of other religions. To give children the opportunity to share experiences of their own religions to inform others and promote a sense of pride.

“The comprehensive teaching about a range of faiths also contributes to pupils’ good understanding of modern Britain.”  Ofsted 2018

Introduction to Religious Education

Introduction to Religious Education

Religious Education enables children to explore some of the big questions about life, to find out about what people believe and what difference this makes to the way they live so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own faith and ways of living. At Kentmere, we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths, and we address fundamental questions concerning, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of a divine spirit. We enable children to develop sound knowledge not only of Christianity but also of other world religions, especially those that are the main faiths of children within our school. We encourage children to reflect on what it means to have faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children to learn from religions as well as about religions so that they can articulate clearly and coherently their own personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences whilst respecting the rights of others to differ.
