At Oakhill and Hanburys Farm Primary School Federation, we encourage children to think and ask questions. Throughout RE there are many questions about morals and ethics, which are addressed within the lessons. As a federation we integrate British Values throughout RE, ensuring children learn how to respect and tolerate other peoples religions and beliefs.
As a federation we follow the scheme PlanBee and we combine the Staffordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education to our teaching. The Staffordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education aim is to develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other major world religions. They focus on developing an awareness of spiritual and moral issues which may arise in children’s lives. We teach RE weekly, ensuring a wide range of topics are being covered to develop children's learning.
Plan Bee’s lessons are all planned to cover National Curriculum objectives, ensuring a complete coverage of the National Curriculum is being taught. There is a consistent approach across the federation as all children are being taught from the same scheme.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from any form of Religious Education, including collective worship (1988 Education Reform Act). For further information, please refer to the school's R.E. and Collective Worship Policies.
Children have really enjoyed learning about RE. They enjoy the different topics we cover and the activities which follow from the lesson.
