At Leamington Community Primary School, we study all aspects of religion and religious worship. We encourage our children to engage in the understanding and beliefs of a wide variety of faiths. Our school’s values: determination, respect, friendship, honesty and courage are implemented in our RE planning. Our school’s motto is ‘together we make a difference’, which we encourage across the school and into the wider community. Our curriculum is widely diverse and fosters acceptance and broadens our children’s understanding of different cultures. Our RE curriculum has a wide variety of activities, which include discussion based, expressive and immersive learning. We create a safe, open environment, where children can discuss sensitive topics. Our school belief is to ACKNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTAND, ACCEPT. Our school provides children with real-life religious artefacts, which link to lessons and brings their RE topic to life.
RE Curriculum intent
Our school’s RE curriculum promotes inquisitiveness, discussion and empathy. The curriculum equips our children with resilience and provides a broad knowledge of different beliefs. We offer our children engaging and exciting RE lessons, which covers the statutory requirements of the RE national curriculum. We are devoted to delivering RE and raising the profile of RE for our children in our diverse society.
Our school is excited to announce fresh opportunities to explore a wide variety of places of worship, which will bring their RE lessons to life.
- Christ Church offer an amazing opportunity to bring the wider community to our school and deliver an assembly once a month to our children.
- Our school collects tins for Harvest festival and are delivered to food banks.
RE Curriculum implementation
Our RE curriculum was recently upgraded to a more comprehensive syllabus, which provides our children with engaging, interactive and enjoyable lessons, which stimulate their curiosity. Each lesson provides assessment opportunities, through a range of tasks. Some of these tasks include: writing, performing, drawing, making or class discussions. This provides the teacher with an opportunity to assess our children in a discrete way.
We provide our staff with the freedom to deliver these lessons under the guidance of our RE curriculum. We believe our teachers are in the best position to adapt and make these judgements based on the knowledge of their pupils. Staff are provided with a curriculum overview of their six RE topics during the academic year. Lesson plans are clearly laid out and teachers are provided with differentiated learning outcomes and greater depth questioning. Our staff have recently been trained on the new RE curriculum and its implied that RE is taught for a minimum of one hour per week. Our RE subject lead has recently carried out an RE audit with staff and pupils, to track the impact of the new RE planning. Teachers record RE evidence and assessments on SeeSaw/books, which is easy to access for our school’s RE lead, which aids monitoring of the subject.
R.E. Subject Leader is Mrs. Danielle Nickson
