Our RE curriculum at Covingham Park Primary School promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths, beliefs and worldviews whilst encouraging our pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging.
We strive to inspire our pupils to ask significant and highly reflective questions about religion and worldviews whilst helping them to discover their own ideas and beliefs. Above all, we want our pupils to develop a respect for other religions and worldviews, whilst appreciating and celebrating the diversity of our school and the diverse world in which they live.
Our RE curriculum is interwoven and supplemented by our school’s Values, the British values and the focus on the child’s spiritual and moral development.
We believe high quality learning in RE has been achieved when pupils extend their knowledge and understanding of religions and worldviews and can offer their own thoughtful and informed insights whilst reflecting on their own beliefs. They can also explore ultimate questions of beliefs and values in relation to a range of contemporary issues in an ever-changing society.
This will be evident through pupil’s engagement in lessons, sharing and talking enthusiastically about different faiths and views and when they demonstrate tolerance towards others who are different to themselves. Class workbooks will provide evidence of children’s learning and teachers will make assessments at the end of each unit.
The impact of our RE curriculum will be overseen by Miss Davis (the subject leader) through learning walks, team teaching, book looks, pupil and staff voice, planning feedback, and ongoing data analysis.
Our leader for RE is Miss Stacey Davis. If you would like to know more about RE teaching, please ask at the school office. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE lessons if they wish.
