The following is a useful guide for parents on the National Curriculum

The next documents present an outline of the content of the new National Curriculum and our locally agreed syllabus for RE. Core subjects (English, Maths & Science) are presented in a year-by-year format, based on the outlines given in the National Curriculum.

RE Programme of Study

At SJS we believe that for the children to really engage with RE, it must first and foremost relate to the child. We teach RE themed around religious themes, such as Celebrations, Prayer, Holy Places, Journeys etc… which allows us to draw in a range of different religions and compare and contrast them. By teaching through themed topics, rather than individual religions, it allows the children to reflect on how these themes relate to their own lives, thus giving them a greater understanding of why they are important to religions. Over the course of their time at SJS, the children will have looked at all the major world religions on numerous occasions, linking them to their own beliefs or experiences.
