  1. Curriculum & Classes
  2. R.E.

Our RE curriculum is designed using the rich and varied Chester diocesan syllabus that studies a range of world religions and world views. In encountering religion and belief through the use of big questions, pupils enquire into the nature of religion, its key beliefs and teachings, practices, it’s impact upon the lives of believers and communities, and the varying ways in which these are expressed. Pupils learn to understand, reflect upon and respond to these important and ultimate questions of life. As a result, pupils learn to communicate their knowledge and understanding using a specialist vocabulary and the language of enquiry which drives our standards in RE. There are clear learning outcomes for all units of work, based on the end of phase outcomes as set out in the RE syllabus.

At the heart of RE in this school is the teaching of Christianity, rooted in the person and work of Jesus Christ which enables learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith though the study of key theological concepts. Utilising the ‘Understanding Christianity’ resource, we are able to provide an engaging and thoughtful RE curriculum. RE is taught as a discrete subject but may also be referenced in a cross curricular context where possible to provide relevance, context and breadth of learning. We also enrich RE through planned RE days or weeks, and invite a range of visitors to support the teaching of RE and it’s learning experience, and whenever possible, there will be planned visits to places of worship.

Parents have a legal right in accordance with the Education act 1996 to withdraw their children from Religious Education lessons, but as RE is central to the life and identity of Marton, we would ask parents to discuss with the Head teacher any reasons they might have for doing this.
