Dickens Heath Community Primary School

Enabling every child to be the best version of themselves


The intent (what we intend to teach) of the Religious Education curriculum can be seen in the DHCPS Religious Education Policy and the Long Term plan. This should be read alongside our whole school curriculum policy which details our whole school curriculum offer, how we are committed to and seek to achieve a broad and balanced, knowledge rich curriculum and why we teach using the methods that we use which are summarised in Rosenshine's 'Principles of effective instruction.'

The implementation of this (how we intend to teach it) is outlined in the R.E. subject on a page.  This should be read alongside our whole school educational strategic overview which details our whole school curriculum design and core curriculum aims.  The subject specific 'subject on a page' documents  show how each subject prioritises each of the curriculum aims and details a route map of how each subject is effectively designed and crafted to seek to achieve these aims. 

We use the Discovery RE scheme of work and programmes to support our teaching and learning in RE.

We monitor the impact of the R.E. curriculum through various means including: evidence of work, pupil conferences, R.E. end of unit assessments and lesson observations.  These are analysed on a termly basis and a 'strategic evaluation and development plan' for R.E. produced which contributes to the whole school ongoing continuous improvement cycle and whole school self-evaluation
