At Dobcroft Infant School we follow the RE Syllabus for Sheffield pupils, SACRE , which establishes what shall be taught in RE in Sheffield schools, and provides teachers with practical support and guidance about how to teach RE effectively.
The 2014 Sheffield RE Agreed Syllabus follows the structure of the DfE’s National Curriculum (2013), so that RE parallels the subjects of the National Curriculum.
In RE, the syllabus pictures how pupils will develop increasing understanding of wide areas of RE subject knowledge, and also how pupils can develop religious literacy, including the skills of:
- investigating religions and world views through varied experiences and disciplines;
- reflecting on and expressing their own ideas and the ideas of others with increasing creativity and clarity;
- becoming increasingly able to be reasonable in their responses to religions and world views.
- We aim to develop learning for diversity and reducing intolerance so that we celebrate similarities and differences
- Visits and visitors: RE is the ideal vehicle for building links with faith communities in the local area of the school. Pupils need opportunities to meet people of different faiths and cultures to develop a respect for those who believe, think and practice differently, without feeling that their own identity or views are threatened.
