RE (Religious Education)

At Blagdon Primary School, we teach RE in all year groups.

The Discovery RE Programme offers us a comprehensive, carefully thought-through Scheme of Work which brings consistency and progression to our children’s learning in this vital curriculum area.

Our belief is that, using an enquiry-based model well, children’s critical thinking skills can be developed, their motivation to learn increased, and their knowledge and understanding of, and empathy with people and their beliefs, religious or otherwise, will be enhanced. This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to explore their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief. RE does not try to persuade but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.

The overviews of each year groups units can be found below.

Our RE lead in school is Miss Beth Brown. If you would like to discuss any of the units in more detail or ask any questions about our scheme, please contact us.
