Intent Implementation Impact
At Mobberley Church of England Primary School, the aim of Religious Education is to help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain. We aim to understand the way that religious beliefs shape our lives and our behaviour, develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance our spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Mobberley pupils will also be taught to understand and use appropriate vocabulary linked to their R.E. curriculum, which will support their development in other curriculum areas such as English too.
RE is taught in accordance with the approved Cheshire East Agreed Syllabus, the following religions have been selected for study:
- Christianity/Understanding Christianity
The teaching of Religious Education makes a distinctive contribution to the school curriculum as it allows all pupils to explore, understand and express their own response to spiritual and religious approaches to life. Our Religious Education curriculum provides high quality teaching and learning, which in turn enriches the children’s learning experiences.
The children at Mobberley Church of England Primary School enjoy learning about other religions and why people choose to follow a religion. Through their R.E. learning, the children are able to make links between their own lives and those of others in their community and in the wider world. Through R.E. our children are developing an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life and worship, which they are then able to communicate to the wider community. As a result, children show high levels of self-awareness and model respect and empathy for others.
Our children will achieve age related expectations or better in RE at the end of their cohort year demonstrating the required skills of their year group curriculum. Pupils will use acquired vocabulary in lessons across other aspects of the school day and school life. Through discussion and feedback, children will talk enthusiastically about their R.E. lessons and other faith days.
