RE and Worship

Religious Education

At Breage C of E School, our RE curriculum entails encouragement of each student to interpret and respond to a variety of concepts, beliefs and practices within religions and to their own and others’ cultural and life experiences.

Overview:

We have implemented the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus 2020, where we deliver a broad R.E. curriculum where 60% of the curriculum time is spent on Christianity whilst the other 40% of the time develops a knowledge and understanding of four other main religions. 

We have implemented the planning resource of the Cornwall Agreed syllabus alongside Understanding Christianity and RE today units. The aim is to ‘help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.

At Breage C of E School, our Christian values are intrinsic to everything we do and are part of the culture and lifestyle that we provide for the children. The values are promoted across the school by staff and children alike.

The school comes together daily as a family for our assembly/ act of worship. The worship changes throughout the year and follows a plan to ensure that different topics are addressed across the school year.  The plan includes out RE topics, school values, British values, Co-operative values, SEAL topics, Bible stories and the church year.
