At Langshott, we follow the Surrey Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education - you will find a copy of this syllabus below. The termly curriculum maps provided by each year group will set out what the children will be learning in any particular term.
We believe that RE makes a distinctive contribution to pupils’ moral and spiritual learning. RE is concerned with exploring human experience, spirituality, considering challenging questions and reflecting upon issues of truth, faith, belief and ethics, as well as learning about the beliefs, teachings and practices of individual religions. We always aim to show children that religions are living faiths operating within a modern world. Thus, we believe that RE has an important role in preparing children for adult life by preventing discrimination as it enables children to develop a respect and sensitivity to others, as well as developing a confident identity of their own. Exploring the concepts of religion and beliefs and their roles in the spiritual, moral and cultural lives of people in a diverse society helps individuals develop moral awareness and social understanding.
