Religious Education stands alone from other curriculum subjects in that it is determined by a Local Agreed Syllabus. At Pilgrims’ Way Primary School, we follow ‘The Kent Agreed Syllabus RE Today Model 2017-2022 for Religious Education.’ (KAS)
Religious Education at Pilgrims’ Way is creative, engaging, questioning and exciting.
Our Religious Education curriculum seeks to make a major contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils by enabling them to acquire the knowledge and understanding of the major religions represented in Britain today.
It seeks to provoke challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.
Our Religious Education curriculum seeks to teach pupils to articulate, clearly and coherently, their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.
Through our Religious Education curriculum, we aim to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address. We aim to enable pupils to develop the understanding and skills needed to engage in a meaningful, informed and academic dialogue with those of other faiths or none, as well as developing evaluative responses of their own.
