In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching RE at Neville’s Cross.
What does RE look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, our Religious Education curriculum is designed and reviewed in accordance with the Durham Agreed Syllabus. Within RE, it is our intent that pupils develop knowledge, understanding and awareness of Christianity and a range of other religions and worldviews. We believe that RE teaching provokes challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It makes a significant contribution to the active promotion of mutual respect and tolerance of others’ faiths and beliefs, a fundamental British value. In RE teaching we aim to foster a sense of awe and wonder, encourage respect for those holding different beliefs and promote spiritual, moral, cultural, and social development. The starting point in any unit of the RE curriculum is a key question that the pupils explore through a range of activities. These are based on knowledge and understanding of religion, critical thinking and personal reflection. The RE curriculum is designed to ensure that pupils build upon previous learning though each key stage and by upper KS2 are equipped to compare features of different religions or worldviews. RE lessons are enriched by trips to places of worship or opportunities for visitors from different faiths/worldviews to come into school. Our curriculum is organised on a 2-year roll and carefully planned so that children have opportunities to revisit and review previous learning whilst acquiring new knowledge and skills.
