We aim to provide our pupils with a sound knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other world faiths by studying different beliefs, the expression of those beliefs, forms of worship, festivals and celebrations, life styles and moral viewpoints.
Eckington Cof E First School follows the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education
(We recognise) "how vital and powerful this document is. Building on earlier work, this syllabus promotes coherent understanding of the major faiths, so that pupils and students recognise the role of faith in people’s lives. This is essential as preparation for living in our richly diverse world. It also allows them to consider their personal belief system as part of their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development." - Dr John Inge, Bishop of Worcester (The Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus)
The Long term plan identifies what each year group will learn. There is a rolling programme of study.
In Key Stage 2 we have adopted a 3 year rolling programme which begins each year with units at an introductory level, moves on to world religion and ends in a comparative study thereby meeting the needs of our pupils across the three year groups.
