 Teachers create a positive attitude to RE learning within their classrooms and reinforce an expectation that all children are capable of achieving high standards in RE. Our whole school approach to the teaching and learning of RE involves the following: 


  • RE will be taught in planned and arranged topic blocks by the class teacher. 
  • Through our planning, we involve problem solving opportunities that allow children to find out for themselves. Children are encouraged to ask their own questions and be given opportunities to use their newly learnt vocabulary and research to discover the answers. This curiosity is celebrated within the classroom. Planning involves teachers creating engaging lessons, often involving high-quality resources to aid understanding of conceptual knowledge. Teachers use precise questioning in class to test conceptual knowledge and skills, and assess children regularly to identify those children with gaps in learning, so that all children keep up.
  • We build upon the learning and skill development of the previous years. As the children’s knowledge and understanding increases, they become increasingly confident in their growing ability to explain different beliefs and values.
  • Skills are embedded into lessons to ensure these skills are being developed throughout the children’s school career and new vocabulary and challenging concepts are introduced through direct teaching. This is developed through the years, in-keeping with the topics.
  • Work will be recorded in Topic books regularly through written work, diagrams, photographs and pupil voice.
