At Cheetwood Primary School we provide our pupils with a coherent, challenging and inspiring Religious Education curriculum that provides them with the knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews in order to participate in a modern, diverse Britain.
The RE curriculum at Cheetwood gets children to think about and answer challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. We provide children with opportunities to learn about and from a wide variety of religions and worldviews, while encouraging and teaching them to respect the rights of others and their beliefs as well as reflect on their own beliefs, ideas and ways of living.
Topics are informed by the Manchester SACRE Agreed Syllabus 2022 – 2027, whose principle aim is to “engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.” The RE curriculum at Cheetwood is carefully planned and structured to ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning.
We ensure children know more, understand more and remember more. When planning RE at Cheetwood, we are sensitive to, take into account and celebrate and value the wide and diverse beliefs of our pupils and whole school community.
