Religious Education

Our curriculum for RE adheres to the statutory curriculum for maintained schools in Calderdale and is authorised by the Standing Advisory Council (SACRE).

The three aims of the curriculum are as follows:

  • Knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and other world views
  • Expression of ideas and insights around questions of beliefs and meaning
  • Investigation and response to important questions for individuals and the wider community

Teaching and learning will focus on the core religions: Christianity; Islam; Sikhism; Judaism; Buddhism and Hinduism whilst recognising diversity and the many other systems of belief. Lessons will follow an enquiry and investigative approach teaching pupils to articulate their personal beliefs whilst respecting the right of others to differ.
