The RE curriculum is taught throughout school using the Kirklees syllabus. In Early Years, RE is taught through circle times, topics and celebrations of a variety of festivals and events. From Year One and onwards, children have a structured RE lesson once per week, in which they will learn about Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. In addition, RE is also delivered in a variety of ways such as assemblies, religious visits, guest speakers and through celebrations and festivals. At Hillside, we have a very diverse make up of pupils and staff members from different cultures and who follow different religions. Therefore we aim to develop children’s understanding of world faiths and beliefs and ensure that everyone is made to feel valued and accepted. We believe that RE provides children a safe place for them to ask questions, challenge stereotypes and express their opinions.
