Religious Studies seeks to encourage pupils to consider the whole way a person lives - the quality of life and human values - and the spiritual strength an individual needs.
Human beings are faced with many issues and problems in life; there are decisions to make about how to live together in peace, about how to treat people, creation and the world. This course will enable pupils to examine these perspectives from the point of view of two religious traditions - Christianity and Hinduism or Buddhism.
William Farr Church of England Comprehensive School has chosen to follow the Lincolnshire Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (2018-2022).
This syllabus aims to help children and young people develop their religious literacy so that they are able to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religions and beliefs. It requires schools to teach about Christianity, Hinduism and Islam, alongside a range of other religions and worldviews. In this school, we have decided to teach the three core religions.
The Lincolnshire locally agreed syllabus for Religious Education ensures that all children and young people have the opportunity to develop skills of critical analysis, interpretation, evaluation and reflection, as well as supporting schools to help them improve their knowledge and understanding of religion and belief. For more information about this syllabus and the way in which Religious Education is delivered at William Farr, please contact the RE subject leader, Carole Lymn.
