Subject Intent

To engage pupils at Woodfield Primary School in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.

By following the Doncaster Agreed Syllabus Units, children are encouraged to work collaboratively but are always given opportunities for independent reflection of their own experiences and beliefs.

The expectation is that the RE curriculum is taught for the equivalent of one hour per week per half term to ensure full coverage of the five units of work for each year group.
