Religious Education and collective worship contribute to the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils and have an impact on all areas/aspects of school life at Parkfield.
Every school is legally required to provide R.E. and daily collective worship for all its pupils, with the exception of those pupils withdrawn from these activities by their parents.
Religious Education should help pupils to
- acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions represented in Great Britain
- develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities, society and culture
- develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues, with reference to the teachings of the principal religions represented in Great Britain
- enhance their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development by:
- developing awareness of the fundamental questions of life raised by human experiences and of how religious teachings can relate to them
- respond to such questions with reference to the teachings and practices of religions, and to their own understanding and experience
- reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences in the light of their study
- develop a positive attitude towards other people, respecting their right to hold different beliefs from their own, and towards living in a society of diverse religions
At Parkfield we follow the Rochdale LA agreed syllabus for Religious Education. Teaching of RE takes place in either one off lessons, themed weeks, blocked units of work or educational visits.
The whole school curriculum overview for RE can be found here. However, more detail can be found in the half termly curriculum overviews.
When planning, teachers use this document to ensure that the appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding for the year group are taught. It ensures high expectations are set in an exciting, comprehensive and broad curriculum.
