Religious Education at Copeland Road Primary School
Our Religious Education leader is Miss Spenceley
Our Religious Education governor is Father McTeer
Pupils at Copeland Road Primary School are taught Religious Education according to the Durham Agreed Local Syllabus 2020. Throughout pupils time at Copeland Road Primary School, they are taught about Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism Hinduism and Islam. In Religious Education lessons, children are taught with an enquiry based learning approach to engage, inspire, and challenge pupils. Within all RE units, pupils are given the opportunity to reflect on their own thoughts, feelings, experiences, ideas, values and beliefs.
When children leave Copeland Road Primary School, we wold like them to be able to:
- Develop attitudes throughout Religious Education such as self awareness, respect, open-mindedness, appreciation and wonder.
- Develop deepening knowledge and understanding about a range of religious and non-religious world views, gain skills that enable critical thinking and reflect on their own thoughts, feelings, values and beliefs.
- Develop positive attitudes to their own and others beliefs, ideas, experiences, feelings and values, in a classroom climate that recognises and respects difference.
The long-term plan for Religious Education is below. There may be changes to the long-term plans as we continue to recover our curriculum after National lockdowns.
