At Dogsthorpe Academy, we seek to provide all pupils with a rich and varied RE curriculum to reflect the culturally diverse community we represent. Here at our school, we expose children to different religions, teachings, belief systems and festivals. This will encourage a sense of identity and belonging amongst our pupils, enabling empowerment. With links to our community and locality, our RE curriculum includes a consistent coverage of Christianity throughout the year groups. Furthermore, as children are explicitly exposed and taught about new world religions every year, they are encouraged to develop an understanding and respect for people with different faiths. Consequently, this helps to challenge prejudice and promotes the ability to reflect, respond thoughtfully and evaluate.
The teaching and learning journey within our RE curriculum seeks for children to grow into individuals who empathise, are generous and compassionate towards others. Children also explore how children may contribute within their communities and within the wider world. This enables them to consider their responsibilities towards themselves and others.
