Welcome to our Religious Education Page!
Religious Education 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 and worldviews, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.
Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
We are all special and unique. At Mauldeth Road, we respect individual differences, diversity and equality. We want to celebrate our amazing, diverse community. We are all different. All religions are different and some people have non-religious worldviews, but we are all the same too. We are one human race, despite our differences.
“We have far more in common with each other than what divides us.” (Jo Cox)
Our Religious Education Curriculum
Religious Education at Mauldeth Road Primary School is based on the ‘Manchester Agreed Syllabus‘ that is written and agreed by representatives of each of the major faith groups. It recognises our local communities and region as vibrant and unique, with much diversity of religion and belief, including that many children come from families that hold non-religious worldviews.
This curriculum is sequenced to enable progress as the children move up through the school, by progressing key ideas and concepts of religions. It aims for children to:
- develop, a deep and rich knowledge of religions and worldviews;
- remember and apply their knowledge of religions (broadly understood) with growing confidence and understanding;
- have opportunities to engage with their own preparation for life in modern, diverse Britain.
At Mauldeth Road, we do not seek to nurture any particular set of beliefs.
Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education- any parent wishing to exercise this right should first discuss their concerns with the Headteacher.
