Religious Education provides our pupils with the opportunity to ask life's big questions. We aim to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils; encouraging them to reflect on their own beliefs and values as well as making connections to the beliefs and values of others.
RE Subject Leader: Mr Bretton
Our R.E. curriculum covers: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Humanism. You can find further information about the topics covered on our curriculum map.
The RE curriculum promotes the respect of others within our communities, exploring diversity and interpersonal skills. Children use cross-curricular skills to make connections with other areas of their learning, e.g. literacy, science, geography and history. By reflecting on their own beliefs and values, children are supported in their spiritual well-being and happiness.
At South Green, we follow the Essex Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education - exploRE: https://schools.essex.gov.uk/other/Essex_SACRE/Documents/RE%20AGREED%20SYLLABUS%202015%20exploRE.pdf
RE is included in the SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) group.
From September 2023, we will be implementing the updated Essex Agreed Syllabus 2022. Its aims are:
- to know about and understand a range of religious and non-religious worldviews by learning to see these through theological, philosophical and human/social science lenses;
- to express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religious and non-religious worldviews through a multi-disciplinary approach;
- to gain and deploy skills rooted in theology, philosophy and the human/social sciences engaging critically with religious and non-religious worldviews.
