Religious Education at Stubbins
In our united school community we are proud to encourage pupils to believe in themselves, respect others and work together to overcome challenges and gain excellence in everything, producing safe, happy educated individuals.
“Religious Education must be taught to all registered pupils in maintained schools, including those in the sixth form, except to those withdrawn by their parents.” (Lancashire Agreed Syllabus 2011) Religious Education is a subject which is taught within the school curriculum. The school follows the Discovery RE package which extends the ideas contained in the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus. Religious Education takes up a proportion of weekly curriculum time and is delivered in creative and flexible ways.
Aims “At the heart of the syllabus the aim continues to be to support pupils' personal quest for meaning by engaging pupils' enquiry into the question 'What is it to be human? , exploring answers offered by religion and beliefs'. In this way, in the words of one SACRE member, we seek to enhance the life experiences of our young people and give them the skills to tackle this life long quest for meaning.” Lancashire agreed syllabus 2011 At Stubbins Primary School RE is a valued subject which gives our pupils the tools to answer the difficult questions in life. We aim to develop their knowledge and understanding of different faiths whilst allowing them to learn about and challenge each other’s beliefs in an unbiased and safe environment.
At Stubbins Primary School we believe pupils should be taught RE for a variety of reasons:
• To acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions. This should include religions represented in our locality as well as nationally and globally.
• To develop a positive attitude towards other people regardless of their gender, race or religion.
• To encourage our children to respect the right of people to hold beliefs which are different from their own
• To develop their ability to make reasoned and informed judgments about religious and moral issues and the skills to live harmoniously within a diverse society.
