INTENT : At Indian Queens religious education should inspire, engage, and challenge pupils. Through RE teaching, children will have a chance to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental and awe-inspiring questions asked by people since the beginning of time.
We are not a faith school, but we value our children's moral and spiritual development. Above all, we aim to develop our children as respectful, tolerant and questioning citizens of the world.
Our curriculum is based upon the 2020 Cornwall Agreed Syllabus. We use the RE today planning scheme to ensure progression from EYFS to Year 6. As much as possible, we use a hands-on approach to inspire our learners.
We are lucky to have visits from Marten Holmes and the Open the Book team to tell our children stories from the Bible.
Children may be withdrawn from RE and assemblies on religious grounds, at parental request. Should you wish to discuss this, please inform the Head of School in writing, and we will arrange a meeting to discuss the request.
How to help your child at home:
BBC Bitesize is a fantastic resource which provides you with videos and interactive games to support the learning of RE. Religious Studies - BBC Bitesize
RE involves a lot of discussion based learning. Therefore, you could support your child by engaging in discussions where they are able to express their opinion and listen to the different viewpoints of others.
