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 9 curriculum includes:
- Beliefs & teachings about meaning and purpose –Why are people religious? Is there proof of existence of God? How do Humanists view the world and understand how the world came into existence?
- Development of understanding beliefs, values and traditions in two religions and investigate and respond to the fundamental questions of life, raised by religious and human experience.
- Thematic Studies: The Existence of God
- GCSE Religious Studies: Component 1 – Christianity Beliefs and Practices
