Curriculum Intent Statement - Religious Education
Through the teaching of RE at Fulwood & Cadley School, we aim for our children to be prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences which they may face later on in life. We want our children to know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews, and have the appropriate spiritual, moral, social and cultural development needed for them to be part of a cohesive society. We want our pupils to grow into responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in our diverse world. Religion and belief inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. We want our children to approach sensitively and respectfully the beliefs, actions and feelings of all people, so that they can take full part in building a more cohesive community where people of different religions and of no religion can live well together.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage, learning through "People and Communities" will help our young children to understand about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and between families, communities and traditions. Children will be inspired to feel confident about themselves and encouraged to be amenable to the feelings and lifestyles of others.
Much of this learning throughout school will take place in the classroom, but the learning will also be contextualized through visits to a variety of places of worship in our local area.
