Here at Moat Farm Junior School, we follow the Sandwell Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2018-2023. We learn about and from all the main religions and faiths through an enriching and engaging RE curriculum. Cross-curricular dimensions such as identity, cultural diversity and community cohesion are reflected in our curriculum. RE lessons also contribute to pupils’ personal development and well-being and to community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society.
The principal aim of Religious Education is “To explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.” (SACRE pg6)
