Danesholme Infant Academy

Be a Moral Citizen


Religious Education Intent

    Religious Education will be taught in a cross curricular manner and closely linked to our PSHE curriculum and Topic work.  In the event that this is not possible, standalone lessons will be used to deliver the content. Discovery RE will support the teaching of RE across the academy, ensuring that skills and knowledge is progressive, whilst utilising the skills and knowledge curriculum framework from Religious Education Council of England and Wales (A Curriculum Framework in England-October 2013) and the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. 

     Whilst at Danesholme Infant Academy, children will learn about and learn from a variety of stories and events within Christianity, and other religions. Children learn to compare, understand and empathize with various cultures and beliefs. This includes observing nature and engaging with the world around them, using our outdoor environment, both on site and in within the local area, to support and question stories from various religious scriptures.   

We take a hands-on approach to teaching R.E. using links from the local community, visitors, trips and resources to bring the subject to life. 

Skills Builder and Careers opportunities are integrated within the R.E. curricular. The children have the opportunity to practice the vital skills during lessons. They are able to listen to and ask questions of, visitors to the academy or during visits, about their beliefs and role within their communities.  

Examples of RE Learning
