Religious Education makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and supports wider community cohesion.
The UK has a rich heritage of culture and diversity. Religion and belief for many people forms a crucial part of their culture and identity. At Low Road and Windmill Music Federation we aim to deliver a diverse range of lessons in KS1 and KS2, which has wider curriculum links with other parts of the school curriculum such as citizenship, personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE education), and our Core Values.
It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, deepening the understanding of the significance of religion and world views in the lives of others – individually, communally and cross-culturally.
World views inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. It helps in developing an individual’s knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs which form part of society. Provoking challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human. It can develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of religious traditions and worldviews. RE also contributes to pupils’ personal development and well-being and to community by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society.
We follow the Leeds Syllabus. Our programme of study for all Key Stages can be found on the website.
