Rothley Church of England Primary (Academy)

"Working together to achieve value and recognise the strengths of all"

 R.E. Vision Statement

At Rothley, Religious Education is a highly valued part of our curriculum, reflecting our Christian values and ethos and aiming to inspire children by the life and examples of Jesus Christ. Although Christianity is at the core of our teaching, children are also given opportunities to study other world faiths. Our teaching encourages children to show respect for others, including those with other faiths and beliefs and helps to challenge prejudice. Our teaching enables children to ask thought-provoking questions and formulate insightful responses, to build their sense of identity and belonging.

We follow two schemes of work: The Leicestershire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education ‘Religious Literacy for All’ and also Understanding Christianity which was written with a desire to see pupils leave primary school with a coherent understanding of the Christian belief and practice, as part of a wider religious, theological and cultural literacy. Both curriculums prompt pupils to reflect on their responsibilities to themselves and to others and explore how they can make a difference both within their communities and wider society.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6
