Religious Education

At Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford, Religious Education enables our children to ask and answer 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. They will gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts, sources of wisdom and authority and other evidence and learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.

We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about and from religions and world views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. They will be equipped with systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and world views, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities. Our children are encouraged to develop an aptitude for dialogue so that they can participate positively in our society, with its diverse religions and world views.

Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent

To build a curriculum subject which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge.

To design a curriculum subject with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the Kent Syllabus so that children can reach and exceed their potential to learn more, understand more and remember more.

To build a curriculum subject which ensures children recognise and celebrate cultural diversity.

To design a curriculum subject which results in children understanding what it means to be a British Citizen or, someone from another country who lives in Britain. To develop an awareness and tolerance of living in a multi-cultural society and being mutually respectful towards the beliefs of others.

Implementation

During each Key Stage pupils are taught knowledge, skills and understanding through learning about Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jewish and Humanist people through three key questions: Believing, Expressing and Living.
Each unit of work identifies prior learning and shows how this is built upon.

Teaching

RE is taught in a block unit within a term to allow suitable links to be made to specific religious festivals taking place.

Resources

Children gain a deeper understanding of the religion studied through the use of high-quality resources/artefacts.

Impact

Children will make at least good progress from their last point of statutory assessment.

This will be measured by the:

Progress from a child’s starting point or from the last point of statutory assessment.

Children demonstrate a positive attitude towards people of any religion and show an understanding of cultural beliefs different to their own. They demonstrate respectful behaviour to all and this is transferable outside of school in the wider community and beyond.

  • Children learn about important people from the past and the present who have been or are positive role models and who are of a different race or religion.
