Religious Education Key Stage 1

Curriculum Co-ordinator: Nicky Brooks

The R.E. curriculum takes elements from The National Curriculum and also the broader school curriculum, laying the foundation for the Prep School R.E. syllabus. The issues we study are explored, making use of discussion, practical investigation, real-life experiences, drama and visitors. A willingness and ability to question, consider and form one’s own opinions is central to the more cognitive element of this curriculum. An appreciation of, and respect for, the feelings and beliefs of others forms the motivation for the part of the Curriculum which aims to support a more personal development within the children. We aim to instil the life-long skills of investigation, appreciation and acceptance in the children.
