At Mary Bassett School teaching follows the R.E. Agreed Syllabus ‘Identities, Meanings, Values’, 2018-2023 (Beds Borough, Central Beds and Luton). Our principle aim in Religious Education and learning is to support children to explore what they believe, what other people believe and what differences this makes to how they live. Teachers plan lessons to enable pupils to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to help them handle questions and feelings raised by religion and belief, as well as to be comfortable and respectful being among people that are different to themselves. Activities include the use art, drama, music, writing and speaking and listening activities to engage the children. Children are naturally curious about the World around them and they are actively encouraged to ask questions about life and religions. These questions may not have any obvious answers but they will be thought provoking questions for exploration in learning and thinking about in a familiar and supportive environment.
For details of how each year group follows the R.E. Agreed Syllabus, visit class pages to look at learning themes. If you have any queries regarding how any aspect of how Religious, Moral and Spritual learning is taught in your child’s year group then please contact their class teacher in the first instance.
