Religious Education

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.

The principle aim for Religious Education

Our RE teaching explores big questions about life, to find out about what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.

Our RE curriculum is multi faith. The agreed syllabus requires that all pupils learn from Christianity. In addition we focus on learning from the religions of Islam, Hinduism and Judaism.  Festivals from other religions are also celebrated throughout the year.

The curriculum for RE aims to ensure that all pupils:

  1. Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.
  2. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews.
  3. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage with religions and worldviews.

If you have any questions about our RE teaching and learning please speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Steinmann-Burnell, RE curriculum leader.
