Religious Education

In Kellington Primary school, the teaching of RE will help pupils to develop an open and sensitive approach to understanding the variety of religious practices, values, beliefs and lifestyles which exist in the local community, the wider community in Britain and worldwide.

We aim to widen pupils’ outlook and develop:

  • The concepts, skills and attitudes for a continuing exploration of religions.
  • Children’s abilities as reflective thinkers, to form and express their own opinions.
  • Children’s spiritual, moral and cultural well being and promote social and moral values.
  • An informed understanding of Christianity and other major world faiths, and to value the diversity of a multicultural society.
  • Children’s respect and sensitivity towards their own beliefs and the beliefs of others.

Our RE teaching links into the teaching of British Values and having a ‘mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.’

We follow the North Yorkshire SACRE RE Agreed Syllabus 2013 - 2018.

In EYFS, Religious Education sits within ‘Personal, Social and Emotional Development’ and ‘Understanding the World’ areas of learning, as children develop a positive sense of themselves and others. In KS1 pupils begin to study Christianity and one other religion, learning basic information about the religion and considering the variety of ways in which ideas are communicated across religions. In KS2 children study Christianity and at least 2 other religions, looking at sacred texts and connecting ideas across religions looking at their impact both locally and globally. In KS1 and KS2 the Quigley ‘Essentials’ milestone statements help to differentiate curriculum planning based on the NY Agreed Syllabus.
