Religious Studies is taught to all students within the Humanities Faculty and the syllabus is the one agreed by Haringey Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE). We provide a curriculum that is suitable for those of all religions or of none.
We aim to:
- enable pupils to be familiar with a body of Religious knowledge, principles, skills and vocabulary.
- contribute to the moral, social and spiritual development of the pupils in order to enable pupils develop a range of desirable personal qualities such as safety awareness, politeness, perseverance, concern for others, initiative and independence.
- enable pupils to be able to work independently and as part of a team.
- develop an awareness in pupils of the implications of religion (post and present) for the individual, the community and the environment.
- allow pupils to develop informed opinions and be able to support them by reasonable arguments that recognise the possible limitations of the ideas and concept used.
Resources & Facilities
There are 2 RS classrooms each with an Interactive Whiteboard. We use a wide range of resources to support effective teaching and learning in RS. They include the following:
- Differentiated textbooks
- Posters (including posters of students’ work)
- Video, CDs and DVDs
- Websites on the Internet
- Visits to Places of worship
- Visitors from different faiths to RE lessons
We choose our resources carefully to reflect:
- The achievements and attributes of different cultural and religious groups.
- Children of different ethnic groups involved in the activities.
- Positively and realistically portray children from a variety of religious, ethnic/cultural groups and class backgrounds.
