R.E is the study of different religions
Our R.E. subject leader is Mrs Brook.
Mrs Brook says:
"R.E. has always fascinated me from being a little girl. I attended a Christian church to learn about the teachings of the Bible with my family and it made me curious about other faiths, beliefs and religions. Traditions and festivals happen around us in the world all the time and it is interesting to learn all about the history of religion and cultures and how non religious opinions challenge them to answer the big questions."
Key Skills and Critical thinking
All primary schools need to “raise the status of RE” (Ofsted) and provide an RE curriculum which promotes respect and empathy. At Owston Park Primary Academy, RE is considered to be a vital part of a child’s education because it allows young people to develop their beliefs and values. It helps children understand the place of religion and belief in the world. The teaching of RE is also important because it contributes educationally to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils. Our RE curriculum is delivered through drop down days on a 2 year cycle - in the first year, children learn about the different religions, and in the second year children apply their knowledge of these religions to learn from religion - to help them to learn about the modern world and debate philosophical questions.
