Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE 

Whole school overview

 

Principal Aim


The principal aim of religious education is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.

 

The RE teaching and learning approach

The RE teaching and learning approach has three core elements, which are woven together to provide breadth and balance within teaching and learning about religions and beliefs. Teaching and learning in the classroom with incorporate all three elements, allowing for overlap between elements as suits the religion, concept and question being explored.

These elements offer a structure through which pupils can encounter diverse religious traditions alongside non-religious worldviews – which reflect the backgrounds of many of the pupils in Gloucestershire schools.
