At Homefields we have adopted the "Chris Quigley" curriculum based on the principal that children will develop a DEPTH of Learning. The curriculum is carefully planned and sequenced, ensuring that all pupils develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in life.
Therefore the essential characteristics that we follow 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.
Homefields Primary School is made up of staff and pupils from many nationalities, cultures and faith groups. As a school we aim to celebrate this diversity. Therefore, Religious Education at Homefields Primary School is an interesting and valuable subject. Children are taught about a wide range of religions and beliefs and are encouraged to develop an understanding and respect for each one. Children are encouraged to be reflective, ask significant questions, investigate and work constructively with others in this subject. Through this subject we aim to enhance the children's spiritual, moral, cultural and social development.
