At Roose Primary School, we want our children to develop a secure understanding of Christianity and different religions and aim to promote curiosity and a love of learning through enquiry-based objectives. Our intent is to be ambitious with the curriculum, to use artefacts, historical places of worship, and plan activities that help our children to become independent and resilient. We want children to be not only equipped with the minimum statutory requirements of the Cumbria locally agreed syllabus for religious Education, but also prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Through Religious Education we aim to develop pupils’ respect for all, educating our children to be tolerant and valued members of the community. Our R.E. curriculum supports our children to develop their own set of values and challenge negative opinions and actions, recognising diversity, respecting other’s viewpoints and developing tolerance of others outside of their community.
We use the ‘Discovery Programme’ as the basis for our teaching, which also covers the Cumbria locally agreed syllabus and the following religions have been selected for study:
