Religious Education Intent:
Across the federation, we follow the SACRE syllabus. It is Bournemouth and Poole locally agreed syllabus for religious education. SACRE support teachers to deliver quality RE that engages children in relevant questioning and exploration of their own and others' beliefs.
We recognise that the personal development of children spirituality, morally, socially & culturally is crucial for them and for society as a whole.
We provide opportunities to explore values, religious & personal beliefs and the way they impact on peoples lives. This develops critical thinking, knowledge, understanding & empathy with others.
We support the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions regarding religion and belief. We therefore explore a range of religions and beliefs using the Discovery Scheme of work to support our teaching.
