Religious Education

At Stoneydelph Primary School we believe RE is an integral part of the curriculum, enabling children to gain valuable insights into diverse opinions and beliefs of people and communities across Tamworth, Britain and the wider world. Teaching of RE prepares children to be positive and respectful members of our community and wider society. It helps children to develop an understanding of themselves and others by learning about religion and from religion.

Our RE curriculum ensures that all pupils are given opportunities to learn about religion and non-religious worldviews in a variety of ways. Our curriculum is designed to encourage creativity, imagination, enquiry, debate, discussion and independence. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. We include and promote British values, ensuring that children are aware of their rights and responsibilities as UK citizens.
What does a typical lesson look like? 
All of our lessons begin with a recall, recap and remember of prior knowledge as we aim to make links from previous lessons or year groups.
We then teach new learning by involving pupils in class, and group discussions. We will then go through key vocabulary with children and discuss their meanings, making links with texts where appropriate. Children are given the opportunity to share or present their learning and understanding in a variety of ways. Children will be invited to reflect on what they have learnt during the lesson and make comparisons with their own and other’s beliefs.
