RE Subject Leader: Mrs Dearnley

Kaye’s RE curriculum is designed to engage and enthuse learners.  We believe that it is an essential area of study which ensures that children are well prepared for life in a world where there are a multitude of viewpoints.  At Kaye’s we enable the children to make their own informed decisions and to have the confidence to voice their views.  It is a subject for all pupils, whatever their own family background and personal beliefs and practices. 

We shall help our pupils prepare for their future by:

  • Developing awareness of the fundamental questions raised by human experiences, and of how religious teachings can relate to them;
  • Responding to such questions by referring to the teachings and practices of religions and other belief systems, relating them to their own understanding and experience;
  • Reflecting on their own beliefs, values and experiences in the light of their study

We aim to develop pupils’ understanding of world faiths and other beliefs by exploring both their commonality and diversity.   The RE curriculum is also about ‘belonging’.  It aims to nurture pupils’ awareness of diversity as well as sensitivity to the questions and challenges that different views and cultures can present.  We all share a common humanity. RE at Kaye’s aims to develop the ability of its pupils to share their view of the world while demonstrating an understanding of others’ views.

We want our children to enjoy RE and develop resilient responses to misunderstandings, stereotyping and division. We want to offer the children a place where difficult or ‘risky’ questions can be tackled within a safe but challenging context. 

RE nurtures SMSC development and pupils’ understanding of diversity.  The children discuss challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.  A holistic approach to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development (SMSC), British Values, and Community Cohesion focuses on preparing pupils for life in the 21st century. 

We aim to provide our children with religious literacy where they will develop their knowledge and understanding of a variety of religious traditions and world views and explore their responses to life's challenges. This gives pupils the knowledge and skills to flourish both within their own community and as members of a diverse and global society.
