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 lV’. 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 the ‘Open the Book’ team. Through our carefully planned creative curriculum the children have the opportunities and experiences to develop curious, respectful attitudes towards others. Children will have an evolving understanding of the world around them and develop a sense of belonging, within their family, local community and wider world. RE is taught through concepts (closely linked to our core values) which gives the children the opportunities to question and make reflections about the world and their own beliefs, values and experiences. This will enable children to foster an understanding of diversity and equality within the world in which we live.
