Curriculum - RE


Religious Education at the Village Federation is based on a combination of the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus and the Understanding Christianity scheme provided by the Diocese. 

Our RE curriculum aims to develop an understanding of Christianity as a living world faith through the exploration of and critical engagement with core theological concepts. We study a number of world religions and their impact on society and culture and we aim to provide a safe space where children feel able to critically reflect on their own religious, spiritual and philosophical convictions.  

EYFS children who are studying Religious Education for the first time are taught as an independent year group and much of their learning in the subject is based on stories, and discussion. In KS1, our curriculum follows a two year cycle during which the children encounter recurrent themes and concepts which are taught and reflected upon in different ways allowing a deepening of knowledge and understanding year on year.  

RE in KS2 is taught through a four-year cycle with links between units carefully interwoven and revisited allowing children to develop a deep knowledge and understanding of each area of study.
