At Castle Primary School, our Religious Education curriculum plays a significant role in ensuring pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
We believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion and different views, so that they can understand the world around them. We aim to develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of others. Children will ask questions about the world and will reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences.
During their time at Castle Primary, children will develop a knowledge and understanding of Christianity and 3 other major world religions: Islam, Judaism and Hinduism. We follow the local syllabus ‘Awareness, Mystery and Value’ approved by Bristol SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education). RE is taught through a theme day each term where children explore a question that is linked to two or more religions.
