Religious Education 2020-2021

Curriculum Intent

At St Stephen Churchtown Academy, we have developed an RE curriculum which develops: 

  • A coherent understanding of several religions, by studying one religion at a time, before bringing together and comparing different traditions. 
  • Clarity about identifiable core concepts of religion and beliefs helps pupils to ‘make sense’ of the religions and beliefs studied, to ‘understand the impact’ of these beliefs on people’s lives, and to make connections in their learning and their wider experience of the world.

Please see the document links at the end of this page to learn about the full RE Curriculum.
