We believe that RE is a key part of realising our vision. RE gives the opportunity to learn, to reflect, to understand ourselves and others, to be challenged with the big questions of life, to become tolerant, to think critically, and to evaluate, as well as to learn about other faiths. It is a very special subject.

 

At The Federation of Middleham (VA) & Spennithorne (VC) CE Primary Schools, pupils and their families can expect a high quality religious education (RE) curriculum that is rich and varied, enabling learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of a range of faiths and world views. We use Understanding Christianity as our main scheme for learning, which supports children to develop a broad understanding of Christianity and how religious belief can impact on the day to day lives of people, we use the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus to teach other World Religions. Through the Understanding Christianity resource, the use of an enquiry approach engages with significant Christian theological concepts and the pupil’s own understanding of the world as part of their wider religious literacy. Links with our school vision, and support for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development are intrinsic to our RE curriculum and have a significant impact on learners. We provide a wide range of opportunities for learners to understand and to make links between the beliefs, practices and value systems of the range of faiths and worldviews studied.

Our core aims are to provide teaching and learning opportunities through the RE curriculum that empowers the children to be:

 

ASPIRATIONAL

RESPECTFUL

RESILIENT

 

We believe that by having these three aims at the root, will equip our pupils to LIVE FRUITFUL LIVES and to LEARN, LOVE and GROW.
