National Curriculum Content
Our local council, Derbyshire and Derby City are responsible for deciding the RE syllabus. The Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education for 2020–2025, states the principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews 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.
Our school uses the Discovery RE enquiry-based approach for teaching RE. Each curriculum area is created around an enquiry question.
