RE

At Radnage, we seek to use our teaching of RE to create 'theologists' so that our children:
  • show an outstanding level of religious understanding and knowledge
  • ask significant and highly reflective questions, giving personal reflections on meaning and purpose
  • have a strong understanding of how the beliefs, values, practices and ways of life within any religion cohere together
  • break down any preconceptions about a wide variety of faiths and the people who follow them
  • develop high aspirations for themselves and the impact they can have on the world

In our school, the students and their families can expect a religious education curriculum that is rich and varied, enabling learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith. RE has a high profile within the curriculum and learning is carefully tailored to meet the needs of all pupils. Two thirds of our curriculum is focused on Christianity, and the remainder looks at a range of world faiths. We monitor progress and attainment in RE carefully, and ensure that it is at least in line with that of other subjects, such as English and Maths.

Our Aims (In line with the Church of England Statement of Entitlement)

  • To enable pupils to encounter Christianity as the religion that shaped British culture and heritage and influences the lives of millions of people today
  • To enable pupils to learn about the other major religions, their impact on culture and politics, art and history, and on the lives of their adherents
  • To contribute to the development of pupils’ own spiritual / philosophical convictions, exploring and enriching their own faith and beliefs
If you are wondering how RE will help you when you are older, these lessons will give you the skills of:

understanding and respecting others, communication, problem solving and analysis, patience, attention to detail and asking questions.

  • working with people - youth and communities

We follow the Buckinghamshire agreed syllabus for RE, delivered through using our own plans and resources.
