RE @ Spire

Religious Education is unique in the school curriculum in that it is neither a core nor a foundation subject, however the Guidance released in 2010 views it as an important curriculum subject. It is the intent of Spire Junior School that Religious Education promotes an enquiry-based approach through the implementation of the Derbyshire and Derby City agreed syllabus. It could be argued that the ability to recognise and understand key points about different religions in Britain is more important now more than ever as pupils are growing up in a world where there is an increasing awareness of the diversity of religions and non-religious world views.  At Spire Junior School we have now made the decision to teach R.E. as a themed day once every half-term, this should enable the learning to have more purpose and take on a deeper meaning. Over the course of the year, we will cover the themes of 'expressing', 'believing' and 'living'. Within these themes, we will also cover: Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism and a comparison between the religions will be formed. The outline of these themed days will be different for each year group.
