Religious Education Curriculum Statement

Welcome to the R.E. (Religious Education) page of our school website! Mrs Crump co-ordinates R.E throughout the school. At Haddenham Community Infant School we work to the Buckinghamshire Agreed Syllabus for RE (2016 - 21). The RE content of our curriculum covers all areas of RE for the infant phase, covering Christianity in the main while taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions as recommended in the Buckinghamshire Agreed Syllabus 2016-21.

Within our RE teaching we recognise the variety of religious and non-religious families from which our pupils come. We welcome and celebrate this diversity, are sensitive to the home background of each child and work to ensure that all pupils feel and are included in our Religious Education. We recognise the importance of pupils’ all-round personal development and the role that RE and our school values play in contributing to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. We affirm the equality of importance of the aims of RE as expressed in the agreed syllabus which are learning about religion and learning from religion and teach to these in a balanced way.

The aims of Religious Education are to enable children to develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and of the other major religious traditions represented in this country, in our local community and around the world. We aim to enable children to develop their understanding of, and respect for, different beliefs and traditions. We want our children to mature in their own beliefs, and to develop a sense of themselves as significant, unique and precious.
