At Fairhaven Primary School, we provide an RE curriculum, which encourages our children to embrace the diverse society in which we live. We aim for our children to gain knowledge and understanding of world religions, developing respect for others and challenging prejudice so that they can be active citizens with the confidence to learn from those different to themselves.
Religious education must be taught to all registered pupils in maintained schools.
This includes all ‘registered pupils’ in reception. Dudley Local Education Authority have produced an agreed syllabus (2013), which sets out what pupils should be taught.
The Education Act 1996 states that an agreed syllabus must reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking account of the teachings and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain –Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
The principal aims of religious education may be expressed in the form of two attainment targets:
Understanding the World - People and Communities
Key Stage One
INTRODUCED TO CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
Acquainted with other religions
Key Stage Two
STUDY IN DEPTH – CHRISTIANITY, ISLAM
Acquainted with Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism
