Subject Leader: Miss Wild
At Martin Frobisher Infant School we follow the Wakefield Agreed Syllabus for RE. The syllabus explains the value and purposes of RE for all pupils, and specifies for teachers what shall be taught in each year group. It provides a coherent framework for setting high standards of learning in RE, and enabling pupils to reach their full potential in the subject.
Our RE Intent
We aim to deliver a high-quality Religious Education which will help pupils gain coherent knowledge and deep understanding of a range of religions and world views. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to find out and know more about different religions and cultures. Teaching should equip pupils to provoke challenging questions about meaning and purpose, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. Religious Education helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives locally, nationally and globally, the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity.
Here are our Key Vocabulary Progression Pyramids for RE
