What is RE?

Religious Education is a statutory part of the curriculum but not part of the National Curriculum. RE makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural developments of children and supports wider community cohesion.


How does it look at Shipton Bellinger?

Shipton Bellinger Primary School teachers follow the current Hampshire Agreed Syllabus ‘Living Difference III’ (2016) and meet the recommended minimum time allocation of 36 hours of Religious Education in Key Stage 1 and 45 hours in Key Stage 2 per year.  The process of teaching and learning for each unit is planned using the cycle of learning. The content of the curriculum at each key stage is addressed in the breadth off study.
