At Towngate Primary we follow the Wakefield Agreed Syllabus, in conjunction with the Learning Challenge Curriculum from Focus Education. Please see our curriculum overviews below for more information.
Our RE curriculum provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions, other religious traditions and other world views that offer answers to questions such as these. It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.
RE encourages pupils to learn from different religions, beliefs, values and traditions while exploring their own beliefs and questions of meaning. RE encourages pupils to develop their own sense of identity and belonging, enabling them to flourish individually in their own communities and in a plural society and global community. RE has an important role in preparing pupils for adult life in a modern Britain, employment and lifelong learning.
Enhancing our RE curriculum
At Towngate Primary Academy, we strive to provide our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum; within our RE teaching, we believe pupils benefit from a range of visits to religious settings and enjoy being visited in school by members of local churches and settings.
