RE

At St Meriadoc Junior Academy our RE curriculum entails encouragement of each student to interpret and respond to a variety of concepts, beliefs and practices within religions and to their own and others’ cultural and life experiences.

Our ethos: 

"The principal aim of religious education is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.The principal aim of religious education is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living."

Overview:

We have implemented the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus 2020, where we deliver a broad R.E. curriculum where 60% of the curriculum time is spent on Christianity and Curriculum Kernewek whilst the other 40% of the time develops a knowledge and understanding of four other main religions in Great Britain. In Y3 and Y5 the children learn about Judaism and Islam and Y4 and Y6 the children learn about Hinduism. In Y6 the children also engage with some Thematic units. 

As of the school year 2020/2021, we have implemented the planning resource of Cornwall Agreed syllabus alongside Understanding Christianity which is a Church of England Education Office project and RE today units. The aim to ‘help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.’

At St Meriadoc our Christian values are intrinsic to everything we do and are part of the culture and lifestyle that we provide for the children. The values are promoted across the school by staff and children a like.

Each year the children decorate value corners with their own work. These corners display different values, focusing on a story from the bible reflecting each of the school values.
