The aim of our RE curriculum at LCA is to create children who are religiously literate and able to hold balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief. .
Our RE curriculum has been designed using the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education published in 2018.
Our RE curriculum aims to:
- Develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions and world views.
- Focus on concepts as well as content, within the context of enquiry based learning.
- Explore authentic religious material, e.g. sacred texts
- Reflect diversity in terms of the changing religious landscape of the UK so that they are prepared for life in modern Britain.
- Engage and challenge pupils.
- Reflect pupils’ own experiences and provide a safe space for discussion.
- Present religious belief as a real, lived phenomenon, not something exotic or belonging to the past.
- Take into account the increase in the number of people with non-religious beliefs and identities.
- Provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.
- Help to prepare pupils for adult life, enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity for others.
