RE provides engaging, and developmental teaching and learning opportunities in which each student is encouraged to challenge and explore their individual knowledge, skills and understanding through a variety of activities which support the student voice. RE explores different religious perspectives and philosophies, which gives pupils the practice in ‘skills for life’ such as empathy, thinking and communicating well. This enables pupils to understand the contemporary world and society with values of tolerance and acceptance of diversity, focusing on developing positive relationships with fellow citizens in the wider community.
The RE Curriculum Area is well-established and very successful, with 2018 GCSE results exceeding the national average for girls, at 85.53% Grades 9-4. All students study Religious Education at KS3. There is only a minimal difference of 4.9% between last year’s results to this year. This suggests students are still being challenged, aligned with the new GCSE specification.
Year 8 curriculum includes:
- Beliefs and teachings of expressions of faith – Judaism: The Nature of God and Modern Day Judaism Practices
- Christianity beliefs about Jesus and Jesus’ life.
- Beliefs & teachings about meaning and purpose: Identity, Faith, God
- Issues of Human Rights and Peace and Conflict.
- Humanism / Humanist world views, meaning and purpose about life.
