Religious Education

Learning about Religion and world views is an entitlement for all pupils at Landscore School.

Our aim for our children is to develop their 'religious literacy' and deepen their knowledge about religions.  

We follow the Devon and Torbay agreed syllabus, and through our planned curriculum, pupils are engaged in the study of religious and non-religious beliefs to promote their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. 

The curriculum provides our learners with knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religious beliefs (Hinduism, Islam and Judaism) as well as non religious views; these are all explored through systematic and thematic units. Children at Landscore are given opportunities to work collaboratively in groups to explore questions that will enable them to make sense of, understand the impact of and make connections between beliefs and views and learn how they influence people in their behaviour, practices and outlook. We will support learners to gain an awareness of their own beliefs and values so that they are able to develop a positive attitude and a respect towards other people who hold religious beliefs and world views that are different from their own.
