Religious Education

Mosspits Lane Primary School celebrates its diversity: it is home to a range of religions, cultures and nationalities. We believe that RE provides opportunities to celebrate our diversity; it is a subject for all pupils, whatever their family background and personal beliefs and practices.


Religious Education has National Guidelines but the local SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education) has created a Locally Agreed Syllabus and a model scheme of work.


We have implemented the SACRE syllabus for RE in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2.


In Years 3-6, we have begun to roll out an exciting, new scheme of work called 'Opening Worlds' which has been developed by Christine Counsell, who is a leading expert in the field of Humanities. One of the huge benefits of this is that it is a humanities project, with planned units in RE, Geography and History that inter-link and create a wonderful sense of how these subjects are interconnected. This has ensured that our RE curriculum now has even greater scope, rigour, coherence and sequencing as a result of these links. 


The RE curriculum map gives an overview of how both the SACRE and Opening Worlds schemes fit together across the school.
