intent

Through the teaching of Religious Education, we build on our Westbury Park school ethos of being respectful and responsible. We aim to promote an understanding of all cultures and religions whilst celebrating them and understanding the importance of challenging discrimination and prejudice.

implementation

Throughout their time at Westbury Park, children will learn about many different religions and cultures through the use of Plan Bee RE and develop their empathy for others. Each year group studies three blocks of RE during the year and, in Key Stage 2, this is taught in PPA. Plan Bee RE encourages children to ask questions and foster their own curiosity and it works alongside our PSHE scheme of learning.

impact

Children will leave Westbury Park with a strong understanding of the beliefs and practices of a range of religions that exist across the world. They will have the ability to question what they are learning and challenge anything that they believe to be prejudice or discriminatory. They will be inquisitive, respectful and kind. 

about 'PLAN BEE RE'

Plan Bee RE is a progressive and comprehensive scheme of study that runs from Y1 through to the end of primary school in Y6. It covers six major world religions as well as multi-faith roles of religion in the community. It sits alongside the national curriculum, covering the objectives and teaching children the range of knowledge and skills they need in order to leave primary school with a rounded knowledge of the world.
