Intent and Overview
By the time the children leave Stanford Primary School, they would have developed the skills to express their own opinions, ask questions, understand and discuss different issues effectively, such as the festivals and practices of a particular faith or religion.
During their time at Stanford, the children will have the opportunity to engage in learning experiences to help them acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain, including Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Humanism.
They will develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on the way people live and enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, in a religiously diverse society. The children will have the opportunity to explore the British Values through RE:
- The rule of Law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those with different cultures and beliefs
At Stanford Primary School, we follow the agreed Merton Syllabus for Religious Education which outlines the content we deliver within our curriculum. An overview of our Curriculum is below.
Children with Special, Educational Needs including pupils who attend the Specialist Provision, follow the Religious Education Curriculum which is then adapted and delivered in a way that supports their learning needs. This may include through Attention Autism or through a multi-sensory way of exploring the world around them. Parents who wish to withdraw their children from all or parts of the RE teaching, may put their request in writing to the Head of School who will review and discuss this on an individual basis.
