We follow the Church of England's Education Offices view that Religious Education needs to provide a balance between three different disciplines; Theology, Philosophy and Human and Social Science. We teach RE in accordance with the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus with the materials from the Diocese of Lincoln used to support lesson planning and delivery.
Children within Foundation Stage will be introduced to the concept of "self identity" and will investigate special places, special books, special people and our special world. A key focus will be given on speaking, listening and responding and will ensure the early development of religious literacy.
Children within Key Stage One will be introduced to Christianity and Islam and will start to embark in a journey of living, thinking and believing linked to the religion.
Children within Key Stage Two will continue the journey of Christianity and Islam and will be introduced to a third religion; Hinduism.
The living, thinking and believing concept will continue, enabling children to be confident, articulate members of society with tolerance and respect for different world faiths.
