R.E. vision and intent at TWS

RE enables pupils to build on their sense of identity and belonging, this helps them to flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society

Children at TWS are exposed to a broad and rich RE curriculum that follows the RE Essex agreed syllabus. This enables children to explore a range of religions, world views, belief systems, festivals and rituals in a variety of ways. They will also develop an understanding of their own communities, personal development and wellbeing.

The lessons at TWS provide high quality, coherent and progressive experience of the subject, with scope for cross-curricular learning.

Through the learning of RE TWS children develop respect and inclusivity of people of all faiths and beliefs, allow them the skills to challenge prejudice. Our children learn empathy, generosity and compassion. They learn to consider their responsibilities to themselves and others and explore how they might contribute to their communities and the wider world.

TWS children understand the relevance of RE in today’s modern world and how it affects our lives.
