The school’s vision is modelled in the Religious Studies curriculum, where we believe in inclusive education for all.

We believe that all of our students deserve a curriculum that meets their differing needs and enables them to fulfil their unique potential.

We want our students to be successful members of the community and to maximise their life opportunities. It is the intention of the curriculum to enable this.

Core Values across the curriculum RE

Updated: 17/01/2023 742 KB

Our curriculum intent is:

  • Coherently plan, sequence and adapt our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
  • Offer breadth of study at KS3 that is sequential in leading to study at KS4; all students will be stretched and challenged over 5 years, taking into account different starting points.
  • By drawing on other subjects in school such as English, Maths, Science and Geography students can develop effective literacy and numeracy skills through digital technology. This creates learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers, with essential analytical skills needed for life.
  • Embed a range of wider enrichment opportunities and experiences, at least one per term, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
  • Encompass the whole school core values through the Religious Studies curriculum.

As a result, the Religious Studies curriculum will:

  • Ensure that our students have a broad insight into Christianity and other major world religions.
  • Ensure that our students develop a respect and tolerance of differences.
  • Ensure that our students develop good reasoning skills which allows them to investigate controversial issues.
  • Ensure that our students develop a responsibility and respect for all aspects of diversity and for the planet they live on via an active, dynamic and experimental curriculum delivered with passion by knowledgeable staff.
  • Develop digital skills to remove all barriers to learning so that ALL students achieve and ensure that our students appreciate the importance of Religious Studies in the development of skills for life and employability.
  • Ensure students are challenged and stretched by developing their leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication skills in order to provide foundations for every aspect of school life.
