Religious Education Curriculum
RE at Westwood Farm
RE Leads: Mrs. Stone and Mrs. Johns
Religious Education (RE) is a statutory part of the education curriculum. At Westwood Farm the school follows the West Berkshire locally agreed syllabus through the ‘Discovery’ scheme of work.
The curriculum requires that RE contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life and beliefs.
Through RE we aim to ensure all children develop their knowledge and understanding of the traditions and culture of the major religions represented in our community and we encourage the children to appreciate and respect the different cultures in today’s society.
RE lessons also provide opportunities for personal reflection where children can explore their own beliefs (not necessarily religious ones), and ask and reflect on challenging questions that can often arise.
