Our RE Curriculum
Welcome to the Religious Education (RE) curriculum at Skegness Junior Academy, where our RE curriculum is not only about religious knowledge; it is a gateway to cross-curricular dimensions such as identity, cultural diversity, and community cohesion. We believe that RE plays a crucial role in shaping pupils' personal development and well-being. It is a key contributor to community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in our diverse society.
Our RE curriculum extends its impact beyond the confines of the subject, making valuable contributions to other parts of the school curriculum, including citizenship, personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE education), humanities, and education for sustainable development. Through this holistic approach, we provide children with opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.
Religious Education is taught to all children unless their parents choose for them to be excluded. Our teaching encompasses several religions and worldviews and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils.
Our teaching enables pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs, attitudes, practices and rituals of a variety of faiths while developing their own beliefs and values.
Children are also taught that some people have no attachment to religious beliefs and follow secular philosophies.
We follow Religious Education DfE Guidance and the Lincolnshire Locally Agreed Syllabus
