What RE looks like at Shaw Ridge School

What a RE lesson can look like in our school:

  • Whole class teaching including opportunities to work individually, in pairs or in groups
  • A wide range of activities to help engage pupils with religion and belief in such a way that they are able to reflect upon and formulate their own beliefs, values and attitudes
  • A balance between Christianity and other faiths is taught across the school

This is our philosophy:

  • To engage pupils in enquiring into and exploring questions arising from the study of religion and belief, so as to promote their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • To enable pupils to share their own beliefs, viewpoints and ideas
  • To promote respect

This is what we do:

  • Clear progressive programmes of study are taught, linking core knowledge, skills and assessment
  • Discrete RE lessons or links with subject areas across the school
  • A whole school focus on Harvest, Easter and Christmas
  • Where possible links made with other subjects to enrich learning

This is what you might typically see:

  • Enthusiastic, engaged learners
  • Questioning from both pupils and teachers, using a range of enquiry skills such as investigation, interpretation and reflection.
  • Independent and collaborative work
  • Range of challenges/differentiation to meet needs of all children
  • Reflective learners who are willing to improve

This is how we know how well our pupils are doing:

  • Different forms of feedback
  • Formative assessment through questioning and challenging during lessons
  • Observations of children during lessons
  • Photographic/video evidence

This is the impact of teaching:

  • Children who enjoy RE lessons
  • Inquisitive children who are willing to ask questions which lead to whole class discussions
  • Children who show respect towards other people who hold religious beliefs different from their own.
  • Children being able to transfer skills taught in RE across the curriculum.
