  RE at Cameley School

RE is taught through the locally agreed Awareness, Mystery and Values Syllabus.  The teaching of RE helps pupils know and understand about Christianity as a living world faith, it explores the core concepts of Christianity and critically engages with biblical texts.  Christianity is taught using the Understanding Christianity resource.  The Curriculum is rich and varied enabling learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith. 

RE helps pupils develop their knowledge and understanding of a range of different religions and world views.  At key stage 1 Christianity and at least one other religion is taught.  At Key Stage 2, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism are taught. 

The RE Curriculum will teach pupils to be well informed and respectful of all religions.  Pupils will reflect on their own religious, spiritual and philosophical convictions.
