Religious Education

At Huntingtower we follow the Agreed syllabus for Lincolnshire.

The aim of RE in Lincolnshire is:

To produce pupils who are religiously literate and able to hold balanced and informed conversations about religion and beliefs.

Good RE should:

  • develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions and world views

  • focus on concepts as well as content, within the context of enquiry based learning

  • explore authentic religious material, e.g. sacred texts

  • reflect diversity in terms of the changing religious landscape of the UK (see

    2011 census below) so that they are prepared for life in modern Britain

  • engage and challenge pupils

  • reflect pupils’ own experiences and provide a safe space for discussion

  • present religious belief as a real, lived phenomenon, not something exotic or

    belonging to the past

  • take into account the increase in the number of people with non-religious

    beliefs and identities

  • provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development

  • help to prepare pupils for adult life, enabling them to develop respect and

    sensitivity for others
