At Barley Fields Primary, we believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion, so that they can understand the world around them. Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. Our Religious Education curriculum is enhanced further with trips to places of worship in our local area.
We use the agreed Stockton on Tees Religious Education syllabus as the basis for our curriculum. We explore religious ideas, beliefs and practices along several themes.
- Beliefs and Practices
- Sacred Text
- Places of Worship
- Rites of Passage
- Founders and Leaders
Our Religious Education Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. We measure the impact of our curriculum through:
- A reflection on standards achieved against the planned outcomes;
- A celebration of learning for each term which demonstrates progression across the school;
- Pupil discussions about their learning;
NOTE: If the parents of any child attending our school wish that she/he be withdrawn from R.E., the Head teacher will be happy to arrange a meeting to discuss this situation and make appropriate arrangements for alternative activities.
