Religious Education and Collective Worship content

The principal content for the RE curriculum is to ‘engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these question, as well as develop responses of their own’.

We have a daily act of collective worship as a Whole-school, Key Stage or Bay Assemblies in accordance with legal requirements.

Curriculum design for Religious Education and Collective Worship:

Our curriculum is supported by The Swindon Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.  At Eldene we use the ‘RE Today’ Scheme of Work which follows a curriculum map which outlines the units of study for each year group.  RE can be taught as a discrete subject but can be made cross curricular if clear links are available, for example PHSE.

Curriculum Choices for (subject):

  • Swindon Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (2016-2021)
  • Special weeks/Days/Religious Festivals/Assemblies
  • Jigsaw programme links
