The aim of the religious education (RE) curriculum at LCA is to develop children who are religiously literate and able to hold balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief.
Our Religious Education (RE) curriculum follows the Lincolnshire Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, published in 2018.
In line with the aims of this syllabus, RE at Lincoln Carlton aims to:
- Develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions and world views.
- Focus on concepts as well as content, within the context of enquiry-based learning.
- Explore authentic religious material, e.g. sacred texts.
- Reflect diversity in terms of the changing religious landscape of the UK so that they are prepared for life in modern Britain.
- Engage and challenge pupils.
- Reflect pupils’ own experiences and provide a safe space for discussion.
- Present religious belief as a real, lived phenomenon, not something exotic or belonging to the past.
- Take into account the increase in the number of people with non-religious beliefs and identities.
- Provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.
- Help to prepare pupils for adult life, enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity for others.
