Curriculum intent

The Religious Studies curriculum is intended to provide powerful knowledge about religious beliefs and practices. Students will acquire a religious and cultural literacy, which will enable them to engage fully in British culture, society, literature, and the arts. Students will have developed a working knowledge of and practical appreciation for the diverse range of religions and cultures present in our school, local and national community. The department believe that our students should be engaging actively and productively in the religious, cultural, civic and political life of the United Kingdom as thoughtful and reflective citizens.


Implementation

Students are taught at Key Stage 3 one 80-minute lesson per week to allow them to delve into the powerful knowledge that they will need to fully appreciate the world that they live in. Students cover theological theories on what a religion is, knowledge of different world religions as well as the religion's role within British society.

In all lessons taught within the religious studies department there are key aspects that are present. There is a clear focus on knowledge retention, though the use of “Knowledge Retrieval”, where students are presented with questions from last lesson, last month and last term. This will help to embed the key knowledge that they need in their long-term memory. By presenting students with the “Bigger Picture” students are able to understand why studying religion still has importance in the modern world.

At GCSE we have chosen the AQA specification as enlists the expectation for students to garner an in-depth Theological knowledge of Muslim and Christian beliefs and practices as well as a thematic section on wealth and poverty, family, animal rights and life. Religious knowledge is at the foundation of the Thematic dialogue and students are expected to base arguments on theological principles of studied previously.


Impact

Students will have a detailed knowledge of religious beliefs will be evident through informally assessed practice of interleaving from lesson to lesson and use of content (in particular use of scripture, theological and philosophical vocabulary) in class debates, classwork and extended writing opportunities of “Silence is Golden” tasks.

Students will be confident in their knowledge of Religious Studies and be able to both verbally and in written form explain their ideas in detail as well as justifying their points with well selected evidence. Students will also have an appreciation for the beliefs of others and why religious tolerance has such an important role to play in Society today.
