Religious Education

Curriculum Intent

In RE we aim to help learners develop knowledge and understanding of the diverse community we belong to through knowledge retention and application.  The curriculum promotes spiritual, moral, social and cultural development with links to other subjects and topics in the Global Curriculum and across school. We promote tolerance of different world views and provide pupils with opportunities to develop their own informed opinions of difficult issues. We will help pupils to express themselves and evaluate other views to effectively come to conclusions about issues connected to spiritual and ethical topics. Pupils will be encouraged to investigate the working of a range of religious traditions and question their own beliefs in a safe and respectful environment. Learning about beliefs and lifestyles helps learners to develop ideas and opinions, and ultimately shapes who we are. Learning to express beliefs and to listen to the views of others through social communication such as discussion, group work, paired work, hot seating and role play are important skills to helps prepare our learners for success into adulthood. Pupils are encouraged to extend their knowledge through independent study and to see learning as a lifelong pursuit.  

Consequently, our KS3 curriculum, guided by the local SACRE Wirral agreed syllabus, provides pupils with an extensive overview of the six major world religions to build a foundation of knowledge and skills essential for greater specialisation at Key Stage 4 and finding their place in our global community.
