Religions and Worldviews

Curriculum Intent for Religions and Worldviews

Religions and Worldviews is a key part of our curriculum and provides children with knowledge and understanding of major world religions and worldviews. The principal aim of R&W is to engage children in enquiry in to important human questions that religion and worldviews address, so they can develop understanding and skills needed to appreciate and evaluate different responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.

As a school, we use the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus alongside Understanding Christianity to ensure curriculum coverage. R&W is taught through play, drama, art, writing, videos, workshops and discussion. Lessons provide children with opportunities to ask and answer questions, extend their knowledge and consider their own and others beliefs and practices. Where possible, Children are given the opportunity to visit places of worship and take part in multi faith workshops at least bi-annually throughout their time at Scargill.

The Governors of a Church of England School have a particular responsibility for the provision of R&W.
