Religious Education (RE)
We believe that religious education (RE) is a subject which enables children to explore religions, their community and personal development and wellbeing. At Woodfield Infant School, our RE lessons are intended to offer a rich RE curriculum to allow for coverage of ‘The 14 Religious Questions’ given in the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2014.
The RE curriculum at Woodfield Infant School has been planned to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to discover, explore and consider these questions in local, national and wider contexts, through learning about and from religions and other world views. Engaging in stimulating RE helps to nurture an informed response to misunderstanding, stereotyping and division. In addition, opportunities for children to develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect on and relate their learning in RE to their own experiences.
RE lessons are intended to offer a rich RE curriculum to allow for coverage of the ’14 Religious Questions’ given in the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, 2014. Throughout all of the RE curriculum children are expected to use the 7Rs of learning.
