Our vision for RE is to develop:
- successful learners who achieve their potential in RE, providing children with a foundation of Christian values on which to build their lives, giving them the opportunity to start discovering who they are and their place in the world
- confident individuals who receive the highest standard of RE, which reflects the school’s distinctive Christian character and education
- responsible and spiritual citizens who gain a greater understanding of the faith and behaviour of the wider community.
- active engagement, drawing on appropriate outside expertise to enhance our RE curriculum
Our RE curriculum is based on Questful RE (Blackburn Diocese syllabus) and follows a 2 year rolling programme. Each class has a different contrasting religion focus. In this photograph we are putting into practice what we learned about sukkahs built for the Jewish Sukkot festival.
Our curriculum is further enriched with
- theme afternoons such as World Faith celebrations; including Hanukah, Diwali and Chinese New Year
- visiting speakers/activity organisers such as Building Bridges in Burnley, Vicar from All Saints Church
- picture news worship, promoting care and responsibility for our world, British Values
- visits such as to All Saints Church, Synagogue, Mandir and Mosque
- extra curricular activities at lunchtime and after school such as Spiritual leaders and Reflective leaders
Year 1/2 and Year 2/3 visited one of the Mosques in Preston, and asked lots of good questions about the Muslim faith.
Year 6 have been learning about Eucharist and visited All Saints Church to find out more from Reverend Hannah.
Year 6 learned a lot from their Sikh visitor, and had a Sikh wedding!
