Religious Education

 

Curriculum Intent

At Broadmead Lower School we aim to develop children’s understanding of themselves and others. We encourage them to embrace and celebrate our differences and one of the ways we do this is through delivering a diverse and stimulating R.E curriculum. We believe that by developing their understanding and awareness this will lead to them becoming respectful, tolerant and well-rounded individuals within the community.

Our curriculum aims to teach children about different religions and the way in which they impact upon individuals and the way they choose to live their lives. Children at Broadmead Lower School will understand how religion impacts upon behaviour, society and individual outlooks. By teaching children about the diversities they may see within their day to day lives we are preparing them to enter a multicultural society. We are also helping to develop their moral and spiritual understanding.

We hope to give children the opportunity to explore and develop their own beliefs and spirituality whilst also giving them the time to reflect in a safe and nurturing environment.

 

 Our school RE curriculum is based on SACRE and the Bedfordshire LEA’s Agreed Syllabus and it meets all the requirements set out in that document.

 

Every year our Year 4 children are fortunate to tale part in the Queen's Park Faith Tour where they have the opportunity to visit 3 places of worship in one day! A church, a gurdwara and a mosque.
