Religious Education

We aim to provide children with their core entitlement of Religious Education within the creative curriculum and Education Law states this should be for at least 5% of curriculum time in KS1.  We follow the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus 2014.  The aim of Religious Education is to help pupils to engage confidently, constructively and reflectively with beliefs, values and lifestyles in a religiously diverse world.

A Religiously Educated pupil in Cornwall must have the opportunity to:

  • acquire knowledge and understanding of religions in Cornwall in the present day
  • acquire knowledge and understanding of how religious traditions have shaped the identity of Cornwall
  • acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain
  • develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities, societies and cultures
  • develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about issues arising from the study of religions
  • reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences as part of their study
