RE at Whitehouse Primary
Religious Education at Whitehouse incorporates our core values of Aspiration, Acceptance, Creativity, Empathy, Resilience, Respect and Reflection.
Through studying Religious Education, we continue to recognise that individuals and communities can be unique. In doing this we celebrate diversity in our community and across the world.
We study Religious Education to enable our children to have a deeper understanding of the faiths, beliefs and cultures of the world religions. This leads to a broadening of knowledge and open-minded ethos that underpins acceptance and tolerance.
As with the other curriculum content at Whitehouse, Religious Education allows children to explore, enquire and challenge in order to understand that having the freedom to choose and hold faiths and beliefs, is part of law in the UK.
School Assemblies at Whitehouse have a broadly Christian content but are also interlaced with themes relating to British Values, Growth Mindset and a Rights Respecting School.
Religious Education and school Assemblies contribute to the children’s development of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
At Whitehouse, RE is taught during weekly lessons using the Stockton agreed syllabus – SACRE.
RE activities are planned to ensure continuity and progression by building on the specific knowledge, skills and understanding outlined in the curriculum as seen in the RE SACRE progression map.
Through studying Religious Education at Whitehouse, the children develop the values and skills required to become well-rounded and successful members of our society.
