Religious Education Curriculum
‘We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry…’ Maya Angelou (1928-)
Our North Ealing Primary School RE curriculum has been designed, in line with Ealing schemes of work and EYFS’s Understanding the World. All children acquire core knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the religions and worldviews which not only shape their history and culture but which guide their own development. We believe that the modern world needs young people who are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values, yet can always be respectful of the religious and cultural differences of others, and contribute to a cohesive and compassionate society.
At NEPS we focus on embracing diversity and teaching a clear and inclusive progression of knowledge and skills across all key stages – thus allowing for purposeful, life-long learning. Our children are provided with a range of opportunities to engage with and think about British Values, become more reflective in their thinking, demonstrate a positive, respectful attitude towards people of any religion and show an understanding of cultural beliefs different to their own.
Outcomes in RE are based on agreed success criteria, work in books, the children’s ability to ask perceptive questions, make connections and share points of view.
Unicef Rights – Article 14
Every child has the right to think and believe what they want and to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Governments must respect the rights of parents to give their children information about this right.
