Religious Education

At Yardley Primary School we follow the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus 2007 for Religious Education  – Faith Makes a Difference.  This conforms to national legislation which states that an agreed syllabus should: … reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian.  Whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principle religions represented in Great Britain. (Education Reform Act 1988).

In RE we aim to develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths. We enable the children to develop a sound knowledge of world religions and to develop mutual respect of different faiths and beliefs through twenty four dispositions which are grouped into six clusters.  During RE children have the opportunity to reflect on what it means to have faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children to learn from religions as well as about religions. Religious Education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. Religious Education promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development by helping them: to be reflective about their own beliefs; to be respectful of others with different faiths and beliefs; to celebrate diversity and to develop a greater understanding, tolerance and respect of those around them in Modern Britain.  Our RE curriculum is broadly Christian to reflect the main religious traditions in Britain, whilst simultaneously incorporating the religious background of our community during RE lessons and Collective Worship.
