Our vision for RE at Birklands

Children are taught RE in line with the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (2021-26).

We believe that by following this, we can ensure children are provided with a multitude of insights and knowledge to enable them to live as responsible citizens in our society within the ever-changing world in which we live.

Each year group will follow the three areas of learning taken from the agreed Syllabus:

  • Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.
  • Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and world views.
  • Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and world views.

By doing this, we aim to broaden the children’s understanding and develop their world-wide awareness.

Using the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education we will enable our pupils to discover more about religion as well as other world views and assist them to apply their learning to a range of topics. Our pupils are encouraged to:

Express ideas and insights into key questions. They will take part in lessons and could also receive visitors to school sharing a range of religious viewpoints and undertake their own visits to varied places of worship.

Study of religious and world views will also promote spiritual, cultural, social and moral development, and will support pupils’ understanding of British Values such as acceptance and respect for others who hold different world views.
