At Belmont Cheveley Park Primary School, children are taught to understand and respect the importance of religious beliefs in the world around them. We encourage children to use and develop their skills in RE and to participate in critical thinking. We aim to ensure that the RE curriculum is challenging, dynamic and relevant to pupils of all ages.
In the Foundation Stage, RE is taught through topics based upon children’s own lives and their own experiences. During Key Stage 1, the study of Christianity is introduced and aspects of Buddhism and Islam are taught. There is also consideration for non-religious beliefs.
In Key Stage 2, the study of Christianity is developed and religious beliefs within Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism and Islam are explored. We see Religious Education as a key part in our role of ensuring our children are able to function well within a modern, multicultural and democratic Britain.
