Religious Education at Meynell Primary School.
Religious Education Subject Lead: Mrs T Holmes
At Meynell Primary School we follow 'Discovery RE' in Nursery through to Y6 which is compliant with the Sheffield Agreed Syllabus.
Religious Education at Meynell has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths which ties into our core drivers or diversity and fairness.
We also encourage children to use RE to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection, which often links to their place in the world, their physical and mental health and their aspirations.
The principle aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community and how we can conserve them.
Our curriculum will provide children with the opportunities and experiences to investigate a range of religions and world views.
Key elements explored in RE:
- Celebrations and Festivals
- Stories of Jesus
- Leaders and Inspirational People
- Believing - beliefs and questions
- What does it mean to belong?
- Religion, family and community
- The journey of life and death
- Symbols and religious expression.
