Cavendish Primary School

RE

At Cavendish Primary, we believe that it is important for all of our pupils to learn from and about religion.

The aim of Religious Education in our school is to help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other main religions represented in Great Britain, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Hinduism. We cover a range of different subjects, for example key religious festivals e.g. Christmas, Holi and Hanukah, and different religious traditions to enable our pupils to appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape our lives and behaviours. Giving children opportunities to develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and in doing so, enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Religious Education is taught across the school, from EYFS to Year 6, to reflect the overall aims, values and philosophy of the school. We have created a curriculum to encourage, enquiry, imagination, creativity, discussion and independence. At Cavendish Primary, we follow the Hull and East Riding Agreed Syllabus (SACRE). The teaching of Religious Education makes a distinctive contribution to the school curriculum as it allows all pupils to explore, understand and express their own response to spiritual and religious approaches to life. Our Religious Education curriculum provides high quality teaching and learning, which in turn enriches the children’s learning experiences.

The school has close links with Sutton Methodist church. Volunteers from the church visit every Christmas to entertain the children, with their performance of the Christmas story. There is also an opportunity for children to participate in a Christingle service.

At Easter, the children visit the church to learn about the Easter Story. Visitors are regularly invited into school to bring religion alive. E.g. visitors from the local Hindu community come into school to teach children about Diwali.

 

CAVENDISH RE AMBASSADORS

At Cavendish we strive to provide children with opportunities to demonstrate their strengths and leadership skills as well as work collaboratively with others. One of those ways is as an RE ambassador.

I am thrilled to announce that the following children have been chosen as our RE ambassadors. RE ambassadors are role models within our school who are keen to promote religious education across the school. It is a real achievement to be chosen to represent the school as an ambassador and as a school, we feel that this role helps children show their leadership qualities.
