RE Overview

At Skelmanthorpe Academy we follow the Kirklees Agreed RE Syllabus. This syllabus is the statutory curriculum for all maintained schools in Kirklees.

The Kirklees curriculum is designed around the three aims:

A. To know about and understand a range of religions and other world views

B. To express ideas and insights about questions of beliefs and meaning

C. To investigate and respond to important questions for individuals and the wider community.

At Key Stage 1 pupils should develop their knowledge and understanding of religions, beliefs and values, recognising local, national and global contexts, with particular reference to Christianity, Islam and a non- religious approach. They should use basic subject specific vocabulary.

At Key Stage 2 pupils should extend their knowledge and understanding of religions, beliefs and values, recognising local, national and global contexts, building on their learning about Christianity, Islam and a non- religious approach and extending this to Sikhism, Buddhism and Judaism. They should be introduced to an extended range of sources and subject specific vocabulary.
