"Encourage one another and build each other up." (Thessalonians 5.11)
At Kilham Primary School, pupils and their families expect a high quality religious education (RE) curriculum that is rich and varied, enabling learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of a range of faiths and world views. We teach according to the agreed syllabus for religious education for East Yorkshire, which was developed through a collaborative partnership between the Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (SACRE) in the Humber region.
As a church school, the teaching of Christianity is at the heart of our RE curriculum, using the Understanding Christianity resource, the use of an enquiry approach engages with significant theological concepts and the pupil’s own understanding of the world as part of their wider religious literacy.
Our school vision and support for pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development are intrinsic to our RE curriculum and have a significant impact on learners. We provide a wide range of opportunities for learners to understand and to make links between the beliefs, practices and value systems of the range of faiths and world views studied.
The school ethos of ‘Learning, Caring and Friendship’ runs through our children’s lives and is a cornerstone of the school. This supports our teaching of Religious Education, which should enable every child to flourish and live life in all its fullness
(John 10:10 I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.)
