RE Policy Rowan Park School 2019-2020

Religious Education

Rowan Park is non denominational. The Religious Education Curriculum at Rowan Park School focuses on teaching pupils about the world in which they live, developing their self-awareness and promoting interaction with others. Rowan Park follows the Equals Scheme of Work. Religious Education is a compulsory subject for 5-16 year olds. Within Rowan Park there are opportunities every day to take part in collective worship/quiet time during class lessons and also through assemblies (twice weekly). All classes have the opportunity to take part in Assemblies and performances based on the religious calendar; Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Parents and Carers are invited to celebrate each special day/holiday with us as a whole school. Under the umbrella of R.E we also accommodate development for SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education). SMSC is cross-curricular education that we embed in all aspects of a Rowan Park day through lessons, friendship, educational visits, vocational subjects and dinner/break times.

 

In R.E pupils are encouraged to explore their sense of identity, belonging which will provide opportunities to flourish into good citizens in the community.
