In November 2020, schools in both Nottinghamshire and the city of Nottingham were issued with the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, ‘RE for All’ 2021-2026
Through the use of the Syllabus we use RE to enable our pupils to gain insight and knowledge to equip them as responsible members in our society. The Syllabus we follow encourages pupils to discover more about religion and world views on a range of topics. They are encouraged to express ideas and insights into key questions which face all human beings as we travel through life. They will take part in in-school lessons, visits and trips (including trips to places of worship).
The three fold aims of RE in Nottinghamshire will ensure that our pupils:
1. Know and understand a range of religions and world views which will allow them to recognise the diversity which exists in our society.
2. Can express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and the impact of religions and world views as they develop their own personal views on a range of issues
3. Develop and use skills which will assist them to engage seriously with religions and world views
By following the Agreed Syllabus, RE will contribute to a whole range of school priorities. Their study will promote spiritual, cultural, social and moral development, as well as enabling them to consider British Values such as tolerance and respect for other who hold different world views.
