At Benchill Primary School we provide pupils with an engaging, challenging, inspiring and coherent Religious Education curriculum, which aims to develop our children’s appreciation and acceptance of diversity within their community and wider world.

The RE curriculum at Benchill Primary School gets children to think about and answer challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. We provide children with opportunities to learn about a wide variety of religions and worldviews, while encouraging and teaching them to respect the rights of others and their beliefs as well as reflect on their own beliefs, ideas and ways of living.

Topics are informed by the Manchester SACRE Agreed Syllabus 2022-2027, whose principle aim is to “engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.”

The RE curriculum at Benchill Primary School is carefully planned and structured to ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning and that the school’s approaches are informed by current pedagogy. We ensure children know more, understand more and remember more about different religions. When planning RE we celebrate and value the wide and diverse beliefs of our pupils and whole school community with sensitivity. We strive to ensure that through understanding and celebrating the differences and similarities between us, we can build a harmonious future together.
