This animation sets out a balanced approach to curriculum design in RE.
The approach to RE curriculum design has been developed by four Diocesan RE advisers* for use in all schools and academies. This work has been developed in collaboration with teachers and subject experts over the last four years and has recently received support from the Church of England Education Office to facilitate its further development. The four advisers set out to try and achieve a balanced curriculum that enables pupils to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religion and belief. This balanced approach will ensure that children and young people are able effectively develop their religious literacy. Implicit within this is the study of a range of religions, belief systems and worldviews.
A suite of resources to accompany this approach is currently being trialled by teachers and advisers who received training on the approach in November. This will be uploaded to this website in due course.
