WELCOME TO RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
Please look below for a range of materials and resources that shape pupils learning in religious education. If you can't find what you're looking for, please contact our RE lead, Mrs Emma Raimes, through the school office.
At Linthwaite Ardron, Religious Education (RE) is an essential part of our rich and broad curriculum. We intend for RE to equip our pupils for life, by helping them to engage in balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief, which touch areas of everyday life on a personal, local and global level.
As a Voluntary Aided School, we use the Dioceses of Leeds and York Agreed Syllabus, which has been developed with national leaders in RE, based on current approaches and philosophy of best practice in education. It is designed to meet the expectations set out in the ‘Religious Education in Church of England Schools: A Statement of Entitlement’ (2016). This syllabus promotes broad and rich learning in RE through three core elements: making sense of belief; understanding the impact of and making connections.
Our curriculum enables all of the children to have confidence in who they are, in their personal beliefs and allows them to engage in meaningful, informed dialogue with those of different beliefs.
