Religious Education

Curriculum Leader: Miss Eleanor Stanhope

Intent: We follow the Lincolnshire Agreed Religious Education Syllabus and at Pilgrim Academy, all children are taught Religious Education (RE). The purpose of Religious Education is to assist children in acquiring and developing knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other major religions represented in the United Kingdom; to appreciate how religious beliefs shape life and our behaviour; to develop the ability to make reasoned and informed decisions about religious and moral issues; and to enhance their spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development. Religious Education is taught throughout the school, especially in the Early Years, to reflect the Academy’s overall aims, beliefs, and philosophy.

Through the RE lessons, we aim to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve through an ambitious, coherently planned, broad and balanced curriculum. RE acts as a hub between social aspects of learning such as science and geography, and our children are developing an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life, which they are then able to communicate to the wider community.

Our RE teaching will assist our children in developing principles for determining what is right and wrong; expand their understanding, respect, and knowledge of their own and other people's ideas and traditions, as well as how these influence individuals and civilizations. We will encourage our children to resist discrimination and stereotypes by promoting equality of opportunity and foster their abilities to relate to others and cope with change by using RE to prepare them for adult life and lifetime learning.

Alongside the syllabus, we use Milestones for teachers and Curriculum Leaders to monitor coverage and track progress across the curriculum, ensuring appropriate sequencing is in place. We use the milestones crated by Chris Quigley Education, in conjunction with our planning to ensure the children develop their knowledge and skills as they move from Early Years through to Key Stage 1 and 2. If you click on the tabs below, you will see the milestones for Early Years; Years 1 & 2; Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6.
