Outcomes in RE books, evidence a broad and balanced range of different religions and demonstrate the children’s acquisition of identified key knowledge. Children review the agreed successes at the end of every session and are actively encouraged to identify their own target areas, with support from their teachers. Children also record and discuss what they have learned comparative to their starting points at the end of every topic. Each child has an RE book that will travel through the key stage with them to allow them to access prior learning and make links across different religions. Emphasis is placed on the four elements and questioning which helps pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of RE and that of the wider world and are curious to know more about the past. Through this study pupils learn to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.


By the end of their time at Asmall, RE teaching will have had an impact in the following ways:

Children have good knowledge of the main religions studied at Asmall.

Children have a greater understanding of the religions represented in our school community.  They have visited places of worship and have spoken with representatives of different faiths.

Children are respectful of all religions, faiths and beliefs. They are taught to be respectful of others’ beliefs when learning about and discussing different faiths and beliefs.

They have taken part in/ have experience of  religious festivals and have made a positive difference in the local community, e.g. attending community groups, taking part in Nativity play, donating time / gifts.

Children are able to draw similarities and differences confidently.

Children have the confidence to respectfully ask questions, know where to seek answers and investigate further.

Children are well prepared for the KS 3 RE curriculum.
