At Horncastle, our RE curriculum meets the aims and objectives in the Lincolnshire Locally Agreed Syllabus. We do this by learning about religious and non-religious beliefs and worldviews, practices and ways of life; developing knowledge and understanding of all members that make up our rich and diverse community and by developing knowledge and understanding of concepts and skills to make sense of religion and belief.
To ensure that our children have first-hand, meaningful experiences, we undertake visits to a variety of local places of worship and have visits from those of faith communities. We also want our children to be tolerant of those of other faiths and beliefs and we do this by ensuring they understand different religions’ beliefs.
We are committed to providing children with exciting and interesting lessons, in which they have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of religions while contributing to their spiritual, moral social and cultural development.
Why is it right for the children at Horncastle?
Our curriculum has been designed to inspire our children to develop a deepening knowledge and understanding of religious and non-religious worldviews beyond rural Lincolnshire. Through our Religious Education lessons, the children will also be able to challenge prejudice, discrimination and racism and become more tolerant and respectful to all people despite their differing beliefs and ideas. The curriculum encourages the children to ask questions and become reflective learners who are empathetic to other people.
