Weaving a journey as a philosopher at Brooklands Farm
Brooklands Farm promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection. The principle aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.
Religious Education is unique in the school curriculum in that it is neither a core nor a foundation subject, however the Guidance released in 2010 views it as an important curriculum subject. We use Discovery RE from Key Stage One and Two and can be used to contribute to the learning experiences of the early learning goals within the Foundation Stage.
