Religious Education Intent Statement

In line with the 2010 non-statutory guidance for Religious Education in English Schools, Lancashire SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education) promotes, supports and encourages good practice in the teaching of Religious Education (RE). The agreed syllabus aims to ensure that all children:

At Castle View, we are committed to providing our children with an exciting and positive learning environment, in which they have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of world religions while contributing to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Religious Education taught in our school (according to the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus Religious Education 2016):

At Castle View Primary School, we seek to ensure that all children in our school are educated to develop spiritually, academically, emotionally and morally to enable them to better understand themselves and others and to cope with the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of living in a rapidly changing, multicultural world. Regular assemblies and celebrations of work taught and learnt during each year group’s RE week will help to celebrate the diversity of the school community and promote positive images of people in the wider community, including their beliefs, traditions, culture, language and history.
