Religious education provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about faith, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

At Lacey Green Primary Academy, the RE curriculum aims to give the children in our care knowledge and understanding of several principal religions. It aims to be fully inclusive, exploring the beliefs, ethics, philosophy and lifestyles that Religious Education encompasses. In EYFS, pupils learn about different religions through topics such as special people, celebrations and important places. In Key Stage 1, the pupils focus on Christianity, Islam and Judaism whilst in Key Stage 2 Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism are taught. Other religions are more lightly embraced through their seasonal celebrations and class topic themes.

Our RE curriculum offers children opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.  It considers the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures. Religious education contributes dynamically to the pupil's education by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of life and death and issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. In RE they learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. They learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully.

The school recognises the Cheshire Agreed Syllabus which ensures pupils:

* Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.

* Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews.

* Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews.
