At Wooburn Green Primary School, we are dedicated to promoting religious education as an integral part of our curriculum. We believe that by providing a rich and inclusive learning environment, we can nurture pupils to become more knowledgeable, respectful, and open-minded individuals.
We intend to develop the children’s knowledge, understanding and appreciation of different beliefs, values and traditions through the study of world faiths and practices while contributing to the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Our aim is to empower students to explore different faiths, values and beliefs, fostering a deep understanding and appreciation for diversity and promoting tolerance and empathy. Through our religious education curriculum, we strive to instill in our pupils a sense of moral responsibility, compassion and a strong foundation for their personal and spiritual development.
We want our children to know how religious education promotes empathy, diversity and tolerance which will enable pupils to combat prejudice, preparing them for life beyond school.
We have adapted the Buckinghamshire Agreed Syllabus schemes of work to meet the needs of our school community. Our curriculum ensures the children learn about different religions and cultures and where appropriate, RE is taught through the topic curriculum to help the children make further links in their learning and provide them with a further depth of understanding.
Our pupils leave school ready for the next stage in their RE education. During their time here, pupils learn about key faiths, places of worship and different beliefs. Pupils visit places of worship to enhance their understanding and awareness of different religions.
All classes are following the Buckinghamshire Scheme of Work and are teaching the correct religious content. This demonstrates the implementation being embedded across the school.
At Wooburn Green, RE is delivered to pupils at a high standard through a wide range of activities that allow the children to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
