As a Church Of England School we are guided by Christian principles and by the conviction that we are all children of God. Through the teaching of religious education we hope to give children a sound basis of Christian knowledge.

 

Our fundamental Christian Values are taught through a range of collective worship, inform our policies and practice and are consolidated and secured through our actions, modelling and inclusion throughout the curriculum as part of our on-going commitment to

 

We also teach children about a range of world religions, including Islam, Hinduism and Judaism. We teach children about the effect religion can have upon people’s lives, and our aim is that children learn to respect people of all faiths. It promotes community cohesion and helps children to appreciate the rich cultural diversity in Britain today.

 

Curriculum Objectives: We aim to ensure children:

 

- consider challenging questions;

 

- explore their own beliefs;

 

- build their sense of identity and belonging;

 

- develop respect for others;

 

- reflect on their responsibilities.

 

Implementation: At Barnack School we follow the local agreed (Cambridgshire) Syllabus for R.E. We teach children about a range of world religions, including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism. We teach children about the effect religion can have upon people’s lives, and our aim is that children learn to respect people of all faiths. It promotes community cohesion and helps children to appreciate the rich cultural diversity in Britain today. Our fundamental Christian Values are taught through a range of collective worship, inform our policies and practice and are consolidated and secured through our actions.

 

Impact: The children at Barnack School demonstrate a solid and broad appreciation of major world religions and an informed and in-depth understanding of Christianity and faith. This is allied to our work in school on our school’s Christian Values and broader British values which we support through worship, assembly, PSHE and the way which we interact with each other in school.
