Religious Education

What we intend through this curriculum

In line with the 2016 guidance for Religious Education and Lancashire SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education) - which promotes, supports and encourages good practice in the teaching of Religious Education RE - the agreed syllabus aims to ensure that all children:

  • Develop understanding of concepts and mastery of skills to make sense of religion and belief, at an appropriate level of challenge for their age.
  • Develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect and relate their learning in RE to their own experience.
  • Have the opportunity to learn that there are those who do not hold religious beliefs and have their own philosophical perspectives, and subject matter should facilitate integration and promotion of shared values.

At Gisburn Road, we are committed to providing our children with an exciting and positive learning environment, in which they have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of religions while contributing to their spiritual, moral social and cultural development.
