Barden Primary School follows the Lancashire syllabus, approved in line with the law, by the Agreed Syllabus Conference, SACRE and the Local Authority. The syllabus explains all the requirements for the RE curriculum across schools in Lancashire, outlining statutory requirements and also, the areas of study for each key stage.
The syllabus aims to give a deeper understanding of what it is to be a human. Following the syllabus, we can become more open minded, respectful and set personal goals in life. With this in mind, these skills and attitudes developed through RE will hopefully make a significant contribution to promoting British Values and developing the importance of diversity and ethnicity.
Barden Primary School hopes to achieve the aims of the syllabus across Religious Education by:
The syllabus has been created in a cyclical format to enable children to revisit and build on their prior knowledge of the different beliefs and practices taught across the school. The syllabus also allows for teachers to be flexible and adapt the term in which units are taught in their year group, to allow for cross-curricular links or involvement with parents or other members of the community.
