We use the 2017 Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity resources to plan our Religious Education curriculum.
The 2017 Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus has been created for Gloucestershire SACRE and approved by Gloucestershire County Council. It provides a syllabus for religious education (RE) for Gloucestershire schools and a coherent framework for setting high standards of learning in RE, and enabling pupils to reach their potential in the subject. It builds on the good practice established in the previous Gloucestershire syllabuses since 2006.
The principal aim of Religious Education, which our curriculum planning supports, 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.
