RE (Religious Education) at The Avenue

At The Avenue Primary School we follow the Discovery RE scheme of work to teach our RE curriculum. Our belief is that, through the effective use of an enquiry-based RE curriculum model, our children’s critical thinking skills can be developed, their motivation to learn increased, and their knowledge and understanding of, and empathy with people and their beliefs, religious or otherwise, will be enhanced. This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief. We believe it important that RE does not try to persuade, but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place. Throughout our RE curriculum, we also embed British Values too, which run alongside the learning seamlessly.
