At Mossgate, we use the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for RE which makes a clear and intended connection between RE and pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development which is connected to all four of the elements of the field of enquiry for RE, and centres on the exploration of the question ‘what does it mean to be human?’.
The RE syllabus enables the teaching of RE to make a distinctive and significant contribution to these four aspects of pupils’ development. It provides a particular insight into spiritual and moral education within the curriculum, and makes a distinctive contribution to understanding society and cultural diversity through developing understanding of religions. It is a legal requirement to teach RE in all maintained schools.
We are proud to work alongside the Faith Centre to provide our pupils with real life experiences from visiting different places of worship and inviting people of different faiths to work with us in school.
