The R.E. coordinator at Flash Ley is Mr Halfhead.
R.E. is taught from Nursery to Year 6. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, (Nursery and Reception) R.E. is taught through 'Understanding of the World (UW)' and through a Creative Curriculum in years 1-6.
We have built our curriculum based on the guidelines from the Agreed Staffordshire Syllabus and have used a demographic map to assign each year a Religion to focus on during that academic year.
It is the 'Key Concepts' that children will explore and further their understanding in regards to the acceptance and tolerance of other faith and beliefs whilst still being given the opportunity to explore, engage and reflect on other Religions or events through our WOW experiences.
R.E in The Early Years
R.E. is taught through 'Understanding the World: People and Communities'. The children learn about different festivals, communities and families. They learn how there are similarities and differences between themselves and others and how they must be sensitive to this.
R.E. in the National Curriculum
At Flash Ley Primary School, R.E. is taught in such a way as to stimulate children’s interest and enthusiasm for RE by enabling them to learn in different ways. We aim to develop children's awareness of different religions within both their community and the wider world. We also aim to develop children's respect for and sensitivity to others, particularly those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own.
