Religious Education

Welcome to Religous Education at Blackwood School.

Religious Education at Blackwood School.

Blackwood School is excited to announce further developments in our Religious Education curriculum through the use and adaptation of the new Walsall SACRE Agreed Syllabus for RE. Through questioning, response to religious texts and practices and research-based tasks, our children will be supported in further developing their skills, enabling them to become respectful members of their own and wider world community.

Religious education at Blackwood school provides insights into aspects of the variety of world religons represented by our pupils and also supports and acknowledges those of spiritual or no belief. Our aim is to further the knowledge, understanding and acceptance of the beliefs and teachings of others, working towards a harmonious membership of a culturally diverse community. Through links to British Values (democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty , mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.) we are able to respond and question, sharing individual opinion supported by well chosen examples from our topics of study.

Throughout our lessons, run the threads of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural foci. Recognising and developing these links enables the further holistic development of our children. Identifying positive influences and role models, lessons to be learnt or what may be truly important in our lives are regular themes within our curriculum.

Learning in RE takes place in a variety of forms. Written responses, use of technology to research or take virtual tours, role play, site visits and 3D creativity and guest speakers are just some of the ways in which our children explore our topics. This variety supports and develops the different ways that our children learn and offers opportunity for all to make progress.
