Religious and World Views Education
Although there is not a National Curriculum for Religion and Worldviews Education, all maintained schools must follow the National Curriculum requirements to teach a broad and balanced curriculum, which includes RE. All maintained schools therefore have a statutory duty to teach Religion and Worldviews Education.
Here at Northfield we aim to provide children with a wealth of opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world, which in turn develops their value and respect for other beliefs and cultures within our community and beyond.
The school follows the Hull and East Riding Agreed Syllabus, which was implemented in September 2022.
The curriculum for RE aims to ensure that all pupils develop religious literacy through
- Knowing about and understanding a range of religions and worldviews, learning to see these through the disciplines of Theology, Philosophy and Social Sciences
- Expressing ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religion and worldviews through a multidisciplinary approach whilst engaging critically with them
- Gaining and deploying skills taken from the disciplines of Theology, Philosophy and Social Sciences to enhance learning about religions and different worldviews
This is achieved through age related, often play based learning with the use of stories, visitors and first-hand experiences whenever possible.
