Religious Education

Rationale

 

Although, the school has undergone academisation, Camp Hill Primary School have chosen to continue with the Coventry and Warwickshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education because of the broad and balanced curriculum it offers. The Syllabus provides relevant and engaging content for our pupils to be able to understand our constantly changing world. From the pupils first day at school the RE Syllabus gives students valuable insights into the diverse beliefs & opinions held by people today. It helps with their own personal development and supports an understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural questions that surface again and again in their lives. Our RE Syllabus does important work encouraging young people to value themselves and the communities within which they live.

 

Intent

 

Camp Hill Primary School offers children the opportunity to explore and develop their understandings, views and beliefs on the “big questions” of life in consideration of religious and worldly views that are at the heart of the schemes of work in Coventry and Warwickshire’s locally agreed RE syllabus.

It is in accordance with this agreed curriculum and syllabus of work that pupils are ensured to gain an ambitious and aspirational curriculum of knowledge and understanding of the main six religions and world views in a safe and caring environment that promotes children’s understanding of a diverse world.

Children will build on prior knowledge and receive challenges to their preconceptions into the big questions of our RE curriculum. Our RE curriculum will allow them to gain rich and creative experiences through first hand experiences and being able express and share their own opinions. Children will gain an understanding of the six main religions and also recognise that many people hold non-religious views.

At Camp Hill we believe that RE lessons will ultimately support our children to become compassionate and thoughtful members of our community and society through their education to make informed choices and voice their own views and beliefs with equal consideration of other people’s beliefs, views and faith.
