Religious Education

At Kenton Bar Primary School, we value Religious Education within our curriculum. Religious Education enables pupils to consider and respond to a range of important questions related to their own spiritual development, the development of values and attitudes and fundamental questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life.
 
Intent
In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:
  • Develop respect for others

  • Foster positive attitudes to diversity and difference

  • Guide children to make sense of their world and community. 

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the locally agreed Newcastle SACRE syllabus

and we aim to:

  • Engage, inspire and challenge pupils

  • Equip pupils with the knowledge and skills to consider and respond to questions of meaning and purpose

  • Encourage children to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of beliefs and practices in the community and wider world

  • Promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
