Religious Education has an important place at Patrington Primary Academy. We follow the York Diocese Syllabus alongside Understanding Christianity. We have sequenced our units of work to ensure a progressive and challenging curriculum, which is accessible to all learners. 

This document sits alongside the overarching curriculum intent document and encompasses the ‘Golden Threads’ that are found throughout the school curriculum.

Our Golden Threads through our curriculum

Foster curiosity.

Learn to disagree respectfully.

Be open to another way.

Find your wonderful – ambition and self worth

Within our inclusive environment our curriculum allows all children to ensure that Equity, Curiosity and Ambition are nurtured.

Through our Religious Education curriculum we aim:

  • to engage pupils in enquiring into and exploring questions arising from the study of religion and belief, so as to promote their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • to provide learners with knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religious traditions and beliefs represented in Great Britain.
  • to develop their understanding of the ways in which beliefs influence people in their behaviour, practices and outlook.
  • to enable learners to apply the insights of the principal religious traditions to their own search for identity and significance.
  • to enable learners to become aware of their own beliefs and values and to have a positive attitude to the search for meaning and purpose in life.
  • to encourage learners to develop a positive attitude towards other people who hold religious beliefs different from their own.
