Religious Education is a distinctive but core part of the basic curriculum for maintained schools in England.
RE is key to helping young people grow up in today’s multi-faith, diverse and connected world. RE aims to give pupils opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of religion and beliefs and to contribute to the development of their own beliefs and values. Children and young people have an entitlement to receive RE at all Key Stages. Everyone has their unique view of the world and RE is about exploring these views. RE can be taught using exciting and rigorous methodologies by teachers with a variety of backgrounds and viewpoints in a way that is relevant to all pupils.
Weekly lessons are planned using the Cumbria Agreed Syllabus.
