Mellis Primary School RE Vision Statement

Intent – Mellis uses the best practice 'Emmanuel' Scheme of Work developed by Helen Matter, late of the Ipswich and St Edmundsbury Diocese. The syllabus supports the aims and values of the school and in addition it contributes to learning across the curriculum at Mellis.

The agreed syllabus aims to ensure:

  • That children are taught age appropriately and as they progress through school they build up a bigger picture, appreciation and understanding of religion.
  • The aim is for children to learn about religion and to also learn from religion.
  • Across the school different religions will be studied and these will be linked to themes so that religions can be compared and contrasted.

Implementation:

Mellis use the Emmanuel project to inform the teaching of RE. This is an enquiry led program and all children get the opportunity to answer a big question every half term to focus their learning.

Children through the Emmanuel project will be taught a fully rounded version of Christianity and the way that it has influenced and shaped Britain over the years.

Children learn about religion to acquire knowledge and understanding so that they can be informed and respectful of different faiths and they can develop their own intellectual curiosity.

Children also need to learn from Religious Education so that they can be inspired and be able to reflect on their own spirituality, morals, cultural development and growth as a person.

Teachers use religious texts to inform their teaching.

Children have the opportunity while at Mellis to make visits and have visitors come to the school so children have a unique insight into religion.

Impact:

RE is an important subject that is taught creatively and  enthusiastically in order that children can learn about faith, identities and ways of life, and so that they are equipped for life in modern Britain and our world.

Children also need to learn from Religious Education so that they can be inspired and be able to reflect on their own spirituality, morals, cultural development and growth as a person.
