At Audlem Primary, our RE teaching offers a broad and rich RE curriculum. Our curriculum allows for a variety of ways to explore religions, the Audlem community and their personal development and wellbeing. The lessons intend to provide a high quality, coherent and progressive experience of the subject, and offers scope for cross-curricular learning. Children will learn about a range of religions and world views. They will be able to identify, investigate and respond to a variety of issues. SMSC, personal growth and community cohesion are featured throughout each non-statutory strand and are there to ensure opportunities for children to develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect on and relate their learning in RE to their own experiences. The intent is to make sure that children understand the relevance of RE in today's modern world and how it affects our lives.

At Audlem, we follow the Handbook to Religious Education in Cheshire East and Diocese of Chester planning too. In KS1, children begin to look at other religions, focusing on celebrations and rituals. In KS2, we look at a wider range of learning opportunities about the world's religions including a deeper understanding of the origin of these religions and their key stories and teachings. Throughout both key stages, emphasis on personal growth and community cohesion is evident, allowing for personal development for the children from KS1 to KS2.

We believe that the impact of using the Handbook to Religious Education in Cheshire East and the Diocese of Chester planning as the basis of our RE curriculum will be for children to have a better understanding of the religions that make up the UK landscape and how they can learn from and work alongside each other to create community cohesion. All children will be more informed about their position in the world and the decisions they can make that influence their future. All children in school will be able to talk confidently about their well-being, moral and cultural development for the society in which they live. The RE curriculum will promote inquisitive minds, respect, tolerance and understanding for all those around them including themselves. Our plans enable high quality work to be produced and evidenced, showcasing a deep understanding of the main religions of the world, their community and their future. This evidence will be seen through using the correct vocabulary, explanations and respectful opinions, as well as cross curricular evidence, for example, religious and cultural art work, drama, craft and presentations. Impact will be seen by all teachers and children enjoying the experience of teaching and learning RE and understanding how it can help them in their future.
