Religious Education (RE)
Subject Leader - Miss O. Foster
At Priory Lane Community School, we are all theologians!
At Priory Lane Community School, we passionately believe that it is important for all children to learn about a range of faiths in order to develop knowledge and tolerance. We aim to provide our children with a firm foundation upon which to appreciate differences in beliefs and worldviews. We recognise the core place that RE occupies as part of a broad and balanced curriculum and its foundation in a strong and inclusive community.
We actively seek to promote key British values, providing pupils with opportunities to encounter and critically reflect on a range of worldviews with positivity.
At Priory Lane Community School, we deliver a well-planned, progressive RE curriculum (based on the SACRE Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education) which helps our children to understand the religious diversity of our local area and those they have not encountered. Children are provided with opportunities to express their thoughts and opinions in a variety of creative ways. The curriculum is founded on the concepts of believing, living and thinking which are central to the disciplinary approach of the syllabus.
The devised progression map allows staff to ensure the children have made clear progression throughout the school and build on previous knowledge and skills from previous learning.
