Every state funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based, and which:
* Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental, and physical development of pupils; and
* Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Religious Education at Wootey Infant School
At Wootey Infant School our planning follows the Hampshire County Council agreed syllabus ‘Living Difference lll’. Whilst at Wootey Infant School children focus on two world religions, Christianity and Hinduism. Children will learn about these religions through stories, looking at religious artefacts and materials and through educational visits and visitors. We have close links with St Lawrence Church and have regular assemblies from Reverend Lynn Power (Schools Ministry Co-ordinator) and ‘Open the Book’. Through discussion and questioning children will have the opportunity to explore and reflect on their own experiences and feelings. Children will have an evolving understanding of the world around them and develop a sense of belonging, within their family and community. Through our RE teaching we plan for children to develop positive attitudes; such as curiosity, respect and open-mindedness.
