The 2017-2022 Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education has the following principle at its core
`To explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living’.
At Kingsholm Church of England Primary School, we have taken the decision to follow the Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education and as such, we create learning opportunities in religious education that will inspire, enthuse and motivate children in their exploration of religions.
We provide the children with creative and engaging ways to explore the 3 core elements within the new Syllabus. The 3 core elements are:
Make sense of a range of religious and non-religious beliefs.
Understand the impact and significance of religious and non-religious beliefs.
Make connections between religious beliefs, concepts, practices and ideas studied.
Our RE leaning supports and strengthens our school vision, ethos and values which are at the heart of everything we do. The importance placed on the development of the whole child spirituality, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually is reflected in our RE curriculum.
Our RE provision at Kingsholm Church of England Primary School has been graded as ‘Outstanding’ by SIAMS.
