The intent of the Religious Education (RE) curriculum at The Adeyfield Academy is to ask about meaning and purpose in life from beginning to end. It gives space and time for individuals to reflect and wonder, who and why.
We explore Christianity, other principal religions and world views, considering how they affect the fabric of personal and social life. Our curriculum identifies the reality of evil, injustice and suffering and it opens up visions of how life for all the world’s citizens can be transformed by truth, awe and kindness.
RE is an inclusive subject promoting and strengthening the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. Pupils who follow the RE programme in our school gain a deep awareness of their own and others’ identities; they consider the mysteries of life and the answers given by a wide variety of religions and beliefs; they develop a clear sense of what is of real value in world today. Through reflection on their own beliefs and values in the light of their learning, they grow in respect for themselves and others.
They demonstrate curiosity about men and women of faith and commitment who have changed individual lives, society and culture. Through RE, they feel compelled to imagine and contribute to the creation of a better world for all.
