At Coleridge Primary School, we follow the Awareness, Mystery and Values curriculum.
There are two distinct strands to this syllabus; one focuses on what we can learn about religious and non-religious world views, and the other looks at what can be learnt from religion.
When learning about religion, the children gain a deep knowledge and understanding of the teachings, practices and life stories of different organised faiths, and also reflect on their own beliefs and values.
When learning from religion, children consider how individuals develop a sense of identity and belonging through faith or belief. They also ponder some of the big questions in life and discuss how moral values, and a sense of obligation, can come from beliefs and experience.
All RE lessons successfully balance these two strands, with equal emphasis placed on both. The principal religions that are studied and discussed during these sessions are Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
