At Hanbury Primary School, we follow SACRE, the agreed syllabus for Sandwell. Children are taught to understand and respect the importance of religious beliefs in the world around them. We aim to ensure that the RE curriculum is challenging, dynamic and relevant to pupils of all ages.
In the Foundation Stage, RE is taught through topics based upon the children’s own lives and their experiences. Within Key stage 1 and 2, RE is aimed to support pupils own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Children are taught how to discuss, debate and disagree in a respectful way. They explore some of the big questions about life, as well as exploring religious artefacts, festivals and rituals. The teaching of RE is enhanced by visits to religious buildings, visits from different community members and the celebration of different faiths in assemblies and class.
