RE (Religious Education)
At Upton, we aim for our students to explore big questions about life, in order to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live. Students are given opportunities to make sense of religion and worldviews, and reflect on their own ideas and ways of living.
From the National Curriculum we have identified the following key strands that are developed through sequenced content, skills and knowledge:
Students will learn from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism as well as non-religious worldviews such as Humanism.
We aim to inspire children to question, think critically and make their own judgements. We have threaded the Oxfam Global Citizenship curriculum through RE to develop children’s awareness of diversity through exploring different values, attitudes and beliefs; develop empathy, critical thinking, respect for others and the ability to argue effectively and to use different perspectives to explore issues of justice, equality and care for others.
