Religious Education


At Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School our R.E. Curriculum is taught in line with the Wakefield Agreed Syllabus 2018.

The curriculum for R.E. aims to ensure that all pupils:
1. Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.
2. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews.
3. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage with religions and worldviews.

We encourage our children to develop tolerance and respect of others' views whilst being secure in the knowledge that their own views, opinions and feelings will be valued.

Our children are taught to develop their knowledge and understanding of religions and worldviews, recognising their local, national and global contexts.

Children at Lee Brigg are taught to use their subject specific language, to raise questions and begin to express their own views and questions in response to the religions and cultures that they are learning about.

Key Stage One pupils are taught the knowledge, skills and understanding when learning about Christian, Muslim and Jewish people. Children will also be exposed to other religions through themes and celebrations.
Children will learn about religions through first-hand experiences with artefacts, stories, religious buildings and visitors.

We have established links with the local churches within the community and are regularly visited by our local Revered who deliveries assemblies to our children.

R.E. is taught through discrete weekly lessons, as well as special themed days or weeks. Our R.E. curriculum in school promotes some of our key curriculum drivers. Children are taught about the importance of building positive relationships with others. Stories from a wide range of religions emphasise the importance of caring for one another and how to be a good friend.

Children are taught about the importance of 'Belonging', whether that is being part of a family, class, school, club or religion, they are encouraged to be proud of the person that they are, the work that they do and the choices that they make.
