Key Stage 3
A GCSE ready RE student will be able to communicate their ideas, beliefs and opinions confidently and coherently. The study of world religion throughout KS3 provides students with opportunities to develop an understanding of what it means to be committed to a religious tradition and have respect for other people’s views. It also allows students to celebrate the diversity in British society and be able to reflect on their own experiences, as well as to develop personal responses to the fundamental questions of life.
Students will practice investigative and research skills that enable them to make reasoned judgements about religious and moral issues. They will focus on philosophical, ethical, religious and Humanist approaches to a range of experiences in life, provoking curiosity and broadening their cultural capital. Students will be provided with the essential skills to examine, critically analyse and evaluate perspectives and belief systems that shape the world in which we live. The nature of this subject and all that it encompasses is to prepare students for the future and develop tolerant, responsible citizens. They will also engage with a variety of texts and arguments presented by theologians, philosophers and ethicists which will help to extend their vocabulary as well as providing challenge to students, thus promoting academic progression.
