Religious Education

At Waddington Redwood, we believe that the essential characteristics of religiously literate students are:

• An outstanding level of religious understanding and knowledge.

• A thorough engagement with a range of ultimate questions about the meaning and significance of existence.

• The ability to ask significant and highly reflective questions about religion and demonstrate an excellent understanding of issues related to the nature, truth and 

value of religion.

• A strong understanding of how the beliefs, values, practices and ways of life within any religion cohere together.

• Exceptional independence; the ability to think for themselves and take the initiative in, for example, asking questions, carrying out investigations, evaluating ideas 

and working constructively with others.

• Significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity, which are shown in their responses to their learning in RE.

• The ability to link the study of religion and belief to personal reflections on meaning and purpose.

• A wide knowledge and deep understanding across a wide range of religions and beliefs. 

At Waddington Redwood Primary Academy, we follow the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, coupled with additional resource material from the enquiry based scheme "Discovery RE".  

Pupils learn "about" religion, exploring human experience, and "from" religion, responding to human experience.  

  • In KS1 Children explore concepts from Christianity and one other world religion.  
  • In Key Stage 2, children explore Christianity and at least two other world religions.
