Religious Education

 In Religious Education, Corsham Regis Primary Academy follows the Discovery RE scheme of work and we learn about the celebrations and festivals that we and other cultures celebrate.
 

We believe that Religious Education can be a major contributor to children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, as well as supporting their understanding of British Values. SMSC and British Values are both mapped across Discovery RE. Our aim is to develop a sense of responsibility and caring for others, to foster an interest in the world around us and to enlarge the child's ideas about other cultures and beliefs.

 

Christianity is taught in every year group with Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism being also being looked at. The children explore the faiths, cultures, and traditions of other people in a safe and secure environment. Our class assemblies also reflect current religious festivals.

 

In RE pupils will be taught to

• Listen and respond appropriately to adults and their peers.

• Ask relevant questions to extend their understanding and build vocabulary and knowledge.

• Articulate and justify answers, arguments and opinions

• Give well-structured descriptions and explanations

• Participate actively in collaborative conversations

• Use spoken language to develop understanding through speculating, hypothesising, imagining and exploring ideas

• Participate in discussions, presentations, performances and debates

• Consider and evaluate different viewpoints, attending to and building on the contributions of others.

 

As an academy we promote wider reading such as stories from different cultures and non-fiction books to play scripts. This links to the writing the children do.  Using the Discovery RE scheme of work cross curricular links can be made with D&T, History, Art and Design, Geography and Music

 

An assembly is held daily, either as a whole school gathering, in Key stages or in a classroom setting. These occasions provide various opportunities including: sharing of common values, the opportunity to learn about other religions through their festivals and celebrations, learning and practising new songs and hymns and celebrating children’s achievements. From time to time, visitors will be invited to share their thoughts and beliefs.  

 

Parents may opt to withdraw their child from collective worship and Religious Education, for religious reasons, after consultation with the Head teacher.  

 

In accordance with our Funding Agreement with the Secretary of State, the academy must provide collective worship that is wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character. We can reflect the religious backgrounds represented in the Corsham community, as long as the majority of provision is broadly Christian.
Through our collective worship we aim to:
 Provide the opportunity for pupils to consider spiritual and moral issues and provide opportunities for them to explore their own beliefs
 Encourage participation and response through active involvement in activities to develop a community spirit, promote a common ethos and shared values and reinforce positive attitudes.


Collective worship at our school is related to daily life, the aspirations and concerns of our pupils and the school, and seeks to preserve the integrity of all our members. We come together to affirm and celebrate experiences of worth to us all.
