Religious Education in Church Schools is a subject of excellence through which we can express our distinctive Christian ethos. It allows a deep spiritual engagement with others which leads to greater understanding of the Christian Values which underpin the curriculum.
Religious Education is unique in the school curriculum in that it is neither a core subject nor a foundation subject but the 1988 Education Act states that ‘Religious Education has equal standing in relation to core subjects of the National Curriculum in that it is compulsory for all registered pupils’
Tugby Primary School is a Voluntary Controlled School therefore we deliver RE in line with the Locally Agreed Syllabus alongside resources from Leicester City Agreed Syllabus, ‘Harmony and Diversity’ and Diocesan guidance.
We aim to build on the children’s knowledge, tolerance and understanding of their own and other religions.
We foster a community that respects similarities and differences
We aim to create successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve, confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
Through the study of religions, we:
Develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities, societies and cultures, form the local to the global.
Develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues, with reference to the teachings of the principal religions represented in the United Kingdom.
Develop positive attitudes of respect towards other people who hold views and beliefs different from their own, and towards living in a society of diverse religions and beliefs.
Analysis and Evaluation
We use these skills to understand the way people of faith behave and to explore our own spirituality.
