At Trinity Road we aim to provide our children with an interesting, exciting and inspiring RE curriculum. We endeavour to provide opportunities for the children to develop their skills by learning about and from different religions. Through RE lessons the children develop their understanding of Respect, Achieve, Belong, specifically by developing respect for all religions and understanding how people of different religions belong in the community.
RE lessons are taught through ‘RE days’ where the children spend a whole day fully immersed in their RE topic. These days take place once per half term. By teaching RE over a whole day, the children get the opportunity to explore concepts more deeply.
We follow the Essex SACRE and teach through the ExploRE syllabus. Lessons are planned using the progression of skills document to make sure that each year group develops and builds upon skills that they were taught in the previous year.
Over the year, the children also have regular visits from members of local religious communities as well as attending services at Holy Trinity Church. Many year groups also visit other places of worship during RE days.
