In line with the current Trafford Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, Religious Education will be delivered in school to meet the agreed syllabus aims by:
-Including knowledge and reference to religious and nonreligious beliefs and worldviews, practices and ways of life.
-Develop a sense of identity, belonging and citizenship in a multi-faith society.
-As part of the syllabus at each Key Stage, visits to local places of worship are encouraged as are visits by members of SACRE and faith communities to our school.
-Develop understanding of concepts and mastery of skills to make sense of religion and belief, at an appropriate level of challenge for their age.
- Develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect and relate their learning in RE to their own experience.
-Have the opportunity to learn that there are those who do not hold religious beliefs and have their own philosophical perspectives.
-To explore a range of ‘Big Questions’ of life developing a deeper understanding of their own and others’ beliefs.
At Well Green, we are committed to providing our children with an exciting and positive learning environment, in conjunction with Growth Mindset, in which they have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of religions while contributing to their spiritual, moral social and cultural development.
RE is taught in a weekly topic block each half term, planned by the teacher to link with key dates and religious festivals, providing opportunities to celebrate festivals and religions with greater relevance and consistency. Planning ensures continuity and progression of knowledge, understanding, concepts, skills and attitudes. Work is recorded in RE books and can be evidenced with a variety of outcomes suggested on the scheme of work; written piece, artwork, photo. RE is also taught through daily acts of collective worship.
The TTSA continues to work with teachers in improving the quality of teaching and learning of RE by providing training, and publishing updated schemes of work and materials and guidance to develop and support Assessment for Learning and effective teaching and learning strategies.
At Well Green, we seek to ensure that all pupils in our school are educated to develop spiritually, academically, emotionally and morally to enable them to better understand themselves and others and to cope with the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of living in a rapidly changing, multicultural world. Regular assemblies and celebrations of work taught and learnt during each year group’s RE topic will help to celebrate the diversity of the school community and promote positive images of people in the wider community, including their beliefs, traditions, culture, language and history.
