Religious Education

Religious Education Introduction

RE has a key role in the promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development which benefits them as individuals and others in their communities. As the world appears to become ever more challenging and complex, it is important that pupils can be prepared for the world, and not lose focus on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural environment.

Teaching of Religious Education at Carbeile provides opportunities for pupils to develop understanding and respect of people’s beliefs and values. We practise our school values to have respect, tolerance, pride and responsibility and look at how these values can be used in other cultures.

Our collective worship gives a platform for the whole community to celebrate, a pause from the business of life, learning how to behave in a large social group with respect and compassion, pride and inspiration.

At Carbeile Junior School we follow the Cornwall Agreed syllabus.

The agreed syllabus is a statutory document for Cornwall LA community, trust, foundation and controlled schools.  It can be adopted by aided schools, academies and free schools with the consent of their governing bodies or board of directors to support the delivery of the syllabus.

The Agreed syllabus implementation booklet sets out how the syllabus may be implemented, but it is for schools to implement the syllabus ,as they decide, as long as they are meeting the statutory requirement.  The booklet should not be used as a definitive guide to how schools must use the syllabus

Implementation booklet with KS1KS2 andKS3 units of work which have been developed by the agreed syllabus writing group since the syllabus was agreed and adopted.  As such they’re a valuable resource and now conform to the requirements of the syllabus as agreed and adopted.

During 2013 there were a number of briefings relating to the Curriculum Kerenewek section of the syllabus. The PowerPoint presentations for secondary and primary schools are available as are the schemes of work for KS1KS2 and KS3.
