RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

VISION:

At BBEC we aim to provide a broad and balanced Religious Education in order to ensure that students gain an appreciation of how religion, philosophy and ethics form the basis of our culture so students can care and respect one another.

THROUGH OUR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CURRICULUM WE INTEND TO: 

  •  Help students learn about and experience cultural and spiritual diversity around the world, in Britain and in the local area, promoting a sense of belonging

  • Equip all students with the skills to discuss their own experiences of life, explore their identity and develop an understanding and respect of others celebrating diversity

  • Ensure all students appreciate and experience the religious heritage and ethnic diversity of their school, local area and on a national and global level

  • Ensure students can understand and ask challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God and other world views, issues about right and wrong and what it means to be human

  • Help students understand belief systems and political ideologies so they can make informed decisions and set themselves challenging goals about how they can be become more active citizens who have a real impact on society

  • Enable students to understand and display British values of respect, tolerance, law and democracy which underpin our school value of kindness. 

  • Provide opportunities for students to extend and challenge their vocabulary and language, enabling them to access and experience authentic, subject specific texts

  • Develop analytical and critical thinking skills, the ability to work with abstract ideas and research skills

  • Ensure that students have a strong knowledge and understanding of the six major world religions and a range of non-religious viewpoints. 

KEY STRENGTHS OF THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CURRICULUM: 

  • Full coverage of the Bradford Locally Agreed Syllabus

  • Although our curriculum follows the locally agreed syllabus, we have ensured where possible there are direct links to issues which directly affect students in BBEC and in the local area.

  • It reflects the needs and beliefs of our students, ensuring we cover topical affairs from a variety of different views, including religious and non-religious world views.

  • Explicit planning to ensure that all protected characteristics are represented so that all students can see themselves in the curriculum.

  • Critical thinking and discursive writing is explicitly taught and planned for ensuring students are prepared for study of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at post 16.
