What is the vision of R.E at Lee Chapel?
Here, at Lee Chapel Primary School, the aim of Religious Education is to help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of major religions and non-religious views.
Our planning (SAT) and teaching of R.E aims to ensure our pupils appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape their own lives, their community and the wider world. They will develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and be empowered to discuss these fluently and articulately, in a manner rooted in tolerance and respect.
At Lee Chapel, our expectations for R.E are:
- R.E lessons are taught with a consistent structure, where units are taught in a 5 lesson sequence: Engage, Enquire & Explore (2 lessons), Evaluate, Express
- Children will cover 5 units within each year group. These are split into 3 different skill types:
- Theology - thinking through believing
- Human and Social Science - Thinking through living
- Philosophy - Thinking through thinking
- At the end of each unit, children will summarise their learning with a piece of work in their Topic books.
- We also have regular visits from faith leaders to enhance students' knowledge, as well as a Celebration of Faith Week as a part of our school's Diversity Month.
Our Children will leave Lee Chapel with the skills and knowledge to confidently engage with Religious Education in KS3 and beyond. They will have the confidence to speak scholarly about what they know and how they know. Also, they will be ready to appreciate religious and moral views, both their own and differing viewpoints, appreciating the contribution religion and non-religion makes to our society and culture.
