At Higham-on-the-Hill we follow the new Leicestershire agreed syllabus and Understanding Christianity for our RE teaching and learning.
RE lessons are taught weekly and most units are covered in a half term. Some units are taught over two half terms so the children are able to revisit learning that may be new.
We want children to develop a deeper understanding of the ideas and concepts introduced in RE as well as giving children a knowledge about different faiths and belief systems. This is so that children develop a better understanding of their own faith and beliefs as well as a better understanding of the wider community.
The curriculum is organised so that in most years children learn about Christianity and usually one other major world religion. Each religion is revisited across the year groups to provide opportunities to consolidate and build on prior learning.
Children learn to respect people from all faiths and none.
