At Blackpool Gateway Academy, children are taught to understand and respect the importance of religious beliefs in the world around them. We encourage children to use and develop their skills in RE and to participate in critical thinking. We aim to ensure that the RE curriculum is challenging, dynamic and relevant to pupils of all ages.
In the Foundation Stage, RE is taught through topics based upon children’s own lives and their own experiences. During Key Stage 1, the study of Christianity is introduced and aspects of Hinduism and Sikhism are taught. In Key Stage 2, the study of Christianity is developed and religious beliefs within Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam are explored. Each year group has a focus on Christianity and one other world religion.
