R.E. is a statutory subject to be taught in schools. At Worthinghead Primary School, we follow the Bradford Agreed Syllabus for religious education 2016-2020 and use this to plan our curriculum.
The Agreed Syllabus states that the purpose of study is as follows:
Religious education contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education in schools by posing challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.
In RE pupils learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. They learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response and to agree or disagree respectfully. RE enables pupils to understand and explain the human values which are shared between religious and other worldviews.
Each year group studies Christianity and at least one other religion and pupils will have studied each of the following religions by the end of Key Stage 2: Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism.
