The curriculum starts in EYFS where children will be introduced to the key concepts of religion in Nursery and Reception through the Understanding the World curriculum as set out in Development Matters. Pupils will encounter religions and worldviews through special people, books, times, places and objects. They should listen and talk about stories. Children can be introduced to subject specific words and use all their sense to explore beliefs, practices and forms of expression.
Throughout KS1 and KS2, children will develop and extend their knowledge of world religions in relation to the wider world. They will then have the ability to develop and raise their own questions surrounding a variety of religions and beliefs. This allows children to cultivate a tolerant and respectful attitude to the variety of cultures in our local community.
