Religious Education

Year 7 and 8

In years 7 and 8 students follow the Lancashire Agreed syllabus for Religious Education. The aim of this syllabus is to support student’s personal search for meaning by engaging enquiry into the question ‘What does it mean to be human?’ exploring answers offered by religion and belief.

Teaching and learning in RE aims to deepen students’ knowledge and understanding of religion and world views and to explore challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality and moral issues. By exploring issues within and across faiths, students learn to understand different religions, beliefs, values and traditions and their influence on individuals, societies, communities and cultures.

In RE, students are participants and not simply recipients of learning. This means that enquiry is at the heart of teaching and learning in order to actively develop curiosity, investigative and questioning skills and an enquiring mind. Learning is varied and is made relevant to the lives of our students. Current events from the media are used frequently.

Students of all abilities are challenged and inspired, whilst developing valuable skills such as debating and essay writing.
