At Wolverham, Religious Education intends to provide our children with knowledge and understanding of major world religions and worldviews as well as opportunities to consider their own personal worldview. We value RE as it enables pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.
Through our curriculum, we aim to engage children in enquiry about religion, build their personal development and challenge prejudice. We intend for our children to build self-esteem, positive relationships with others and to show respect for all cultures. Respect underpins our curriculum with the goal of children being able to consider how they might contribute to their communities and society.
We strive to support our children in reflecting on their own views and experiences though our response element of our learning. These responses support children in their understanding of how they see the world around them. During their time in EYFS children explore special events in their lives and in some religions. This is continued to be built on in KS1 as they begin to explore stories in religion and how these link to celebrations. As they continue to move through the school, children begin to discuss and explore moral questions relating to their learning.
