Programme for Teaching Religious Education

We use the ‘Come and See’ Programme which is based on the Religious Curriculum Directory, to deliver the religious curriculum. Each class covers 3 topics a term, each for approximately 4 weeks. These link teaching and learning in RE to the 4 strands of study in the RE Curriculum Directory: Revelation, The Church, Celebration and Life in Christ. We supplement these materials with the Diocesan framework's units, particularly where they help address attainment at higher levels for upper Key Stage 2.

References to the RE CD are made in teacher's planning for each topic. Planning is thorough and teachers are encouraged to be creative and to use a range of resources to illuminate lessons and foster learning. Teachers are asked to adapt planning so that tasks and learning outcomes meet the needs of all pupils.

Children also learn about two different faiths: Judaism and  Islam. This is aimed at fostering pupils' respect and understanding for our brothers and sisters of other faiths. A wide selection of resources have been purchased to support the children's learning and understanding of key aspects of other faiths. Pupils visit the New West End Synagogue as part of their learning about Judaism.

Parents are given information about the RE curriculum through:

* Parent / Teacher curriculum meetings at the beginning of each term
*Termly RE newsletters
* Wednesday Word leaflets given as a weekly gift to each family to support the Sunday Gospel
*Half-termly book-looks where parents can see what children have been learning
*Class assemblies, to which parents are invited each term, showcase the children's learning in RE
