Religious Education (RE)
At Woodfield Primary School, we believe that our curriculum enables our children to feel a sense of belonging, which is why we have designed our Religious Education (RE) curriculum to ensure that our children feel represented in the content that is studied. Our children begin their journey in RE in EYFS by talking about their own identity and what is special to them. This is further built upon in our progressive curriculum which ensures that our children leave Woodfield with a deeper understanding and respect for people’s beliefs, values and traditions, whether they be the same or different to what they and their families may personally believe. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences as part of RE learning and know that visits to local places of worship, combined with children being able to meet with people who hold different beliefs, further enhance our RE provision. In order for our curriculum to match the ever-growing diversity of our school community, we follow Understanding Christianity and the agreed Diocese of Lichfield syllabus.
Our RE curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress.
