Religious Education (RE)
Our aim is for our learners to develop their wider world understanding of who we are, why we are here and how we live and flourish together through cultivating their own thinking and understanding of Christianity and other faiths. Our pupils engage with a range of activities, religious treasures and key texts to gain a deep spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding of religion, working towards applying their knowledge academically to create thought-provoking, high quality outcomes. Spirituality, one of our curriculum drivers working towards creating courageous advocates, provides a thread through which our curriculum is founded, allowing our learners to explore the significant theological concepts within Christianity and other faiths as part of developing their wider theological and religious literacy through many connected subjects.
At Mangotsfield C of E Primary School, our pupils learn about the Christian faith and other world views through our agreed resources: ‘Understanding Christianity’ and the locally agreed syllabus. We know the importance of celebrating other faiths and cultures to ensure that all children develop an understanding, respect and tolerance of the multi-faith society we live in, promoting diversity and plurality.
Our RE knowledge is organised into 2 blocks: Learning about Religion and Learning from Religion
