Religious Education

Curriculum Intent for RE 

Curriculum Aims 

Our intent in the Kingfisher Partnership is that we want our children to have knowledge of the world around them, to understand the beliefs of different faiths and to understand what they themselves believe in. We want our children to show respect to all faiths and to understand the similarities and differences between the faiths. We want the children to be reflective and to be able to hold balanced and informed conversations with others with regards to religion and belief. 

How does this subject develop spirituality? 

Within RE we experience wonder and joy through learning about and from stories, celebrations, rituals and different expressions of religion and worldviews. By asking and responding to questions. We consider questions about God and evaluating what we see and hear. By exploring spiritual practices such as worship and prayer, and considering the impact of these on believers as well as any relevance to their own life.  

Assessment 

Assessment in this subject is carried out across the unit of learning. It involves questioning and observations by staff as well as children’s self-assessment. Children are given time and encouragement to celebrate successes, as well as think, respond and consider how they would improve next time.   

We consider a final assessment at the end of the unit of learning, against the intended learning outcomes. These are uploaded to our shared file to inform planning by teachers and subject leaders.
