Intent, Implementation and Impact Statement: Religious Education
At William Bellamy Primary School, we have designed our R.E. curriculum with the intent that our pupils will become resilient, accepting, mindful and inquisitive learners. Our R.E. curriculum allows pupils to discover and gain an insight into religions within the world that we live. The teaching of R.E. is vital for pupils to understand others beliefs and make connections between their own values. It is our role to ensure pupils are being inquisitive by asking questions about the world around them by allowing pupils to gain high quality experiences.
We will deliver a curriculum that:-
- Celebrates the diverse and rich community at William Bellamy Primary School.
- Inspires creative learning through excellent teaching practices that build on prior R.E. learning and allow for repetition and progression of skills that build upon high starting points.
- Our curriculum embraces the community in which it is situated, recognising local places of worship including: church, mosque, gurdwara and temple.
- Is inclusive, develops self-confidence and identifies that all our pupils are unique and therefore we should all be tolerant of each other’s beliefs.
- Encourages our pupils to be inquisitive about others beliefs developing inquiry based R.E. skills that allow them to culturally aware of the world around them.
- Promotes equality and understanding of the British values and ensures they are prepared for life in modern Britain
The school’s overarching intent based in nurture and diversity, this is embedded into the curriculum to ensure that the curriculum is reflective of our school community and all teaching is delivered using a nurturing approach.
The R.E. curriculum follows Barking and Dagenham Agreed Syllabus and Planning which is the adapted to meet the needs and local context of the school. R.E. follows a whole school approach, which will be taught discretely on a weekly basis.
