At Dale Hall we believe that Religious Education helps to develop a child’s understanding of the world around them, learning about and learning from religions and worldviews. Children are provided with a safe space to develop their understanding and awareness of different religions, focusing on beliefs, values and traditions which are important to individuals and communities.
Our children are encouraged to explore and consider their own responses to their learning and to agree or disagree respectfully. Reflecting on their own views and those of their peers further deepens their understanding and gives the children an opportunity to reflect on their own personal belief system and how this affects their actions. At Dale Hall we intend to develop children who are tolerant and respectful of the beliefs of others and who appreciate that everyone is different.
Each half term unit is taught using the Emmanuel Project which meets the requirements for the Suffolk Agreed Syllabus. The children focus on a different religion each half term and the relevant skills are selected to develop their thinking and show progression within the subject across the school. Children’s learning is displayed in their year group scrapbook, evidencing their journey through a religion; including the knowledge they have gained and how they have reflected on this. During the school year children are given the opportunity to embed their learning either by going on a trip to a local place of worship or listen to a visitor at school.
At Dale Hall we encourage children to display their RE learning in a variety of ways including writing, art, drama and group presentations. Discussing often challenging subject-matter provides the children with invaluable opportunities to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally both in terms of their understanding of a particular religion and their own views.
