Religious Education

Ashby Fields follows the SACRE locally agreed syllabus for Religious Education. Teaching and learning focusses upon Christianity alongside the other principal religions which are represented in British society. Children are encouraged to investigate different religions, engage with their knowledge and reflect upon their learning and own lives, so they develop their ability to understand religion, beliefs and practices.

In EYFS, children build the foundation for their learning in Religious Education by exploring similarities and differences between themselves and others, and amongst families, communities and traditions.

In Key Stage One, children learn to identify similarities between Christianity and other religions through exploring family, neighbourhood and special times.

In Key Stage Two, pupils begin to look at wider national and international examples of religion. They do this through exploring diversity and similarities and differences within and between Christianity and other principal religions, whilst also acknowledging humanism and other world views.
