Religious Education


The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.

RE explores big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.

Dane Royd School follows the Wakefield RE Agreed Syllabus for 2018-2023.

The new syllabus builds on the previous syllabus in that it:

•Outlines the legal requirements for RE

•Adds a principal aim, clarifying the purpose  of the subject

•Outlines the breadth of study

•Offers key questions

•Offers an outline of knowledge/content as a guide

•Offers a planning process to support teachers

At Dane Royd Junior and Infant School, we are very much giving the children the building blocks that they need in order to know baout and understand a range of religions and world views. We want children to be able to express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and world views. Children will gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and world views.
