Religious Education Curriculum
In our school we follow the Kent Agreed Syllabus 2018 for RE. As a church school, we follow Understanding Christianity as well as the associated World Faith units provided by the Diocese and RE Today (who wrote the Understanding Christianity curriculum). Details of the different units and which year groups do them at any particular time are below.
The law states that all pupils must be taught Religious Education and that there should be an act of collective worship each day in schools. This law applies to all schools whether an academy or state maintained. The recommended time for teaching RE is 5% of teaching time during the year (which equates 50 minutes in KS1; and 1 hour and 10 minutes in KS2). The time for collective worship is separate from and in addition to this.
