‘Let your light shine’ 

Matthew 5:16

The Religious Education curriculum at St.Barnabas School enables and encourages all children to develop a self-awareness of their own ideas and to recognise their own uniqueness and self-worth.  The curriculum  allows  all children to personally reflect and develop their own spirituality ,while also developing a  respect and understanding for the different religious faiths and beliefs of others. 

Provision 

Our Religious Education curriculum follows the Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education Syllabus for RE as recommended by Liverpool Diocese, which fulfils legal requirements and the RE statement of Entitlement from the Church of England Education Office. The syllabus provides coverage of both the Christian faith and other main religions and provides opportunities for the children to make links between beliefs, practices and values. 

 The curriculum is delivered with an enquiry approach, engaging with biblical text, developing religious literacy and linking with Christian values. Throughout the syllabus, children are taught to use general skills of gathering information, asking questions, expressing ideas and evaluating. 

Early Years 

In Early Years the children explore RE Chatterbox Units. Each unit provides a range of activities which encourage and allow the children and adults to explore together a collection of objects and stories linked to a Religious theme. The children are encouraged to ask questions and develop ideas and experience activities which support their early learning of RE 

Key Stage 1 / 2 

In Key stage 1 and 2 the children are taught in units which provide the children with a deeper understanding of Christianity and other world faiths. The enquiry based approach of the syllabus enables the children to develop key skills alongside the content they are learning. Key questions are asked which encourage the children to discuss and investigate their ideas and to reflect, evaluate and make decisions. The units enable the children to study Bible stories and to engage in activities which look at the impact of beliefs on people’s lives. Connections to their own lives and experiences can also be made. 

Impact 

The impact of the RE curriculum is to enable the children to have a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, while also developing a knowledge of other main religions, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism .  

The curriculum gives the children the opportunity to ask ‘Big questions’, this enables them to gain a understanding of the world they live in and recognise areas of common belief and practice between different faiths. 

The curriculum allows all children to replicate the school vision and values upon their daily choices and decisions ,this acts as a foundation to encourage our pupils both now and in the future.
