FODS summer Fete Saturday 15th June. We look forward to seeing you there!

Religious Education at Downfield aims to develop children’s religious and theological literacy by exploring religion through two aims: Sources of Wisdom and their impact; and personal and critical responses. We look at these aims through eight areas, which explore different aspects of religion.

Our curriculum provides pupils with opportunities to develop rich and varied knowledge and understanding about Christianity, and principal religions (Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism and Hinduism) as well as worldviews which give life value. Our curriculum aims to enable pupils to become religiously and theologically literate so they can engage in life in an increasingly diverse society. It is not about telling pupils what religious views they should have but rather assists them in gaining shared human understanding, developing personal identity and searching for meaning in the context of evaluating different viewpoints.

What our children think about RE at Downfield...

Each year group will study Christianity and one other principal religion to build progression across the key stages and ensure a greater depth of learning. See more information below:
