R.E. (Religious Education)
Through the Religious Education curriculum at Danesholme Junior Academy, we aim to develop pupils’ religious literacy and their knowledge and understanding of principal religions around the world. We want our pupils to develop attitudes of respect towards other people who hold views and beliefs different from their own and the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious issues.
Our approach to teaching our religious education curriculum is enquiry led, starting with a key question based on human experience. We use the Discovery RE scheme as the basis for our curriculum, covering the following religions: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
This is how our curriculum is mapped through the school:
There is more information for parents on Discovery RE in the booklet at the bottom of this page.
