RE

Intent & Vision

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, children learn about 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 and Islam throughout the year groups. As children engage by exploring the practices, faiths and beliefs of new world religions, they achieve an understanding about the diverse community that they are a part of. Consequently, this prepares children to respect people that belong from different religious backgrounds, it challenges prejudice and promotes their ability to reflect, respond thoughtfully and evaluate.
