Religious Education (RE)

Intent

At De Lucy, we believe that it is important for all our pupils to learn from and about religion, to help understand the world around them. The aim of Religious Education in our school is to help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain; to appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape life and behaviour, develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Further, it is to explore and investigate similarities, differences and connections within and between religions, beliefs, values and practices. 

Implementation

Religious Education follows the Agreed Syllabus as outlined by the Royal Borough of Greenwich Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE). Throughout Key Stage 1, pupils explore Christianity and three other principal religions. Through these they learn about different beliefs about God and the world around them. They begin to understand the importance and value of religion and belief; they talk about what is important to them and others, valuing themselves, reflecting on their own feelings and experiences and developing a sense of belonging. In Key Stage 2, pupils learn about Christianity and all five of the other principal religions, recognising the impact of religion and belief locally, nationally and globally. They make connections and begin to recognise diversity, similarities and differences both within and between religions and beliefs. They will recognise the challenges involved in distinguishing between ideas of right and wrong, and valuing what is good and true. They consider their own beliefs and values and those of others in the light of their learning in religious education.

Understanding Faith and Belief in RBG

Impact

The children at enjoy learning about other religions and why people choose, or choose not to follow a religion. Children are assessed each half term to keep track of their learning. Through their R.E. learning, the children are able to make links between their own lives and those of others in their community and in the wider world; this will help develop an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life. 

How parents can help

At De Lucy, we fully appreciate the importance of parental involvement and the impact that support from home has on a child’s education. You could discuss a variety of beliefs and visit a range of places of worship to encourage your child to deepen their understanding and be able to compare any differences and similarities they notice between these and their own beliefs. 

Partnership links

We are linked with Reverend Ruth Turner at William Temple Church in Thamesmead, a local Christian place of worship. We have made further connections in the wider religious community to plan trips and visits to places of worship.
