Religious Education Intent Statement

RE is taught discretely to deepen the understanding of religions where we can learn from or learn about certain people, places, religious books and artefacts. Our curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and reflects religious traditions in Great Britain – with a focus on Christianity whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions represented in Great Britain and our school community.
At Thames View Junior School, we aim to ensure that children know about and develop an understanding of a range of religions to ensure they can describe, explain and analyse beliefs and practises, recognising the diversity which exists within and between communities and amongst individuals. Through this subject we enable children to express ideas and gain insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews to enable them to express with increasing discernment their personal reflections and critical responses to questions and teachings about identity, diversity, meaning and value including ethical issues.
