At Wadworth Primary school, our Religious Education curriculum is based upon the Curriculum Maestro scheme of learning and the Doncaster Agreed Syllabus. By teaching R.E. through a variety of media, including art and drama, we aim for children to become creative and reflective learners who are able to express themselves fluently and confidently. We aim to develop children’s understanding of how religion affects people’s lives and through studying Christianity and other world religions, pupils will be encouraged to celebrate diversity and respect others’ beliefs. Our Core Values provide the platform on which we have built our curriculum offer at Wadworth Primary School. Our R.E. curriculum is underpinned by our Core Values in the following ways:

  • Persevering
    • To show a resilience and have faith in all that you do.
    • To understand that the perseverance and attentiveness leads to personal pride and gratification.
  • Problem solving
    • To do their best work and then to push themselves beyond what they consider to be their best.
    • To develop a desire to achieve something and be the best version of themselves
  • Independence
    • To develop the confidence to ‘have a go’.
    • To develop the confidence to think independently and have their own beliefs.
  • Being attentive (listening)
    • Acquire skills through listening to others.
    • Have a knowledge of other religions and how they contrast with your own beliefs.
  • Communicating
    • To promote respect and tolerance of others’ beliefs in a diverse society.
    • To become literate and articulate about religions and beliefs and to be thoughtful members of a plural society.
  • Collaborating
    • To be tolerate of others and understand that we all have differing opinions.
    • To show care and understanding for others.

 Beyond the Subject:

We would like our Religious Education curriculum to help children to:

  • See the world from different perspectives
  • Increase their empathy
  • Observe and look closer at the world around them
  • See connections in the world



Our R.E. curriculum has been designed according to the Doncaster Agreed Syllabus and lesson ideas are linked to the Curriculum Maestro programme. The Agreed Syllabus states that all pupils need to;

  • Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews,
  • Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews and
  • Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews. R.E. will be taught in ways that engage, inspire and challenge children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to both ask and answer tricky questions.

Through a range of stimulating activities, such as drama, art or debate, children will develop an understanding of religious tolerance, enabling them to see the importance of working together to combat prejudice, thus preparing them for adult life, future employment and life-long learning in our multi-cultural society. Throughout their time at Wadworth Primary School, children will learn about Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and non-religious world views. Children pay regular visits to the local church for services and the Reverend makes frequent visits to the school to deliver whole school worship session.



Ongoing R.E. assessment is used to inform teacher’s planning. R.E. monitoring takes various forms. A key component of this is pupil voice. School leaders use pupil voice as an effective tool to ascertain the children’s embedded R.E. subject knowledge, vocabulary and skills as well as their love for learning the subject. R.E. book monitoring throughout all year groups also takes place once a term to compliment this, allowing leaders to ensure our children have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills fully. Examples of our children’s R.E. work is exhibited throughout the school, both on classroom and communal displays.
