Religious Education at St. Luke's
As a Church of England School, we support children of all faith and those of none. We actively celebrate the wonder of faith and the world around us, as part of this we follow the National Curriculum guidance on teaching children RE. We learn about all faiths and encourage children to question religion and to find out why people believe what they believe.
We are also keen to broaden our pupils' experiences through developing an awareness and understanding of Global Christianity, we are proud to link with New Brainstorm School in Kampala, Uganda and regularly communicate with Mr Nikolas (Principal) and the children there.
In Modern Britain, it is important for all of our children to learn to have tolerance and compassion for others and for them to have an appreciation and respect for other people's beliefs and faith. Every year we celebrate the diversity of our school and the world itself through Theology Week - the week centres on the teachings of many faiths; including Christianity, Islam, Judaism. Sikhism and Buddhism for instance.
Our Curriculum draws on materials from RE Discovery and Understanding Christianity and is further enhanced by linking with the faiths from our School Community. From these rich resources we plan lessons and experiences that enable our children to wonder and ask questions about the religion they are studying, as well as, encouraging them to make links between other religions. Our curriculum spirals and builds on prior learning.
We link our experiencial immersive offer to the National Society's Statement of Entitlement for RE.
Please see our last SIAMS Inspection report (May 2017) wherein we were graded as Outstanding and also examples of our RE curriuculum below.
