RE Overview at Woodside Academy
At Woodside Academy we follow the Bradford’s Agreed Syllabus, Believing and Belonging, for Religious Education. This syllabus has been designed to meet local needs and is suitable for Academies in the Bradford District.
Bradford has a proud tradition of being a diverse city and district where all religions and many worldviews are represented and therefore religious education and philosophical thought are a major part of local discourse which should begin with very young children and continue into adult life.
Teachers at Woodside Academy ensure that RE is an exciting and stimulating subject that enables pupils to bring their own experiences of life, to explore their identity and to develop an understanding of others.
What we learn
Pupils learn about religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts. They learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response and to agree or disagree respectfully. RE enables pupils to understand and explain the human values which are shared between religious and other worldviews.
