At Springfield Primary School, we understand the significant role that Religious Education plays in developing pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. In line with our own school values, Springfield's Religious Education aims to promote respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs as well as encouraging pupils to develop their own sense of identity and belonging as they reflect upon and relate learning to their own experiences. Springfield Primary School aims to help children to develop an appreciation for the place that religion holds in people's lives and how it has influenced the growth and development of today's society.
Our school follows the Trafford Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in accordance with Trafford's ‘Standing Advisory Council of Religious Education’ (SACRE). The knowledge, learning and skills that we teach our pupils is based around a key question approach which relate to: What people believe and do (Believing), how beliefs and values can affect people's lives (Living) and how people embrace their identity and diversity (Expressing). We also make meaningful links with the other subjects of the curriculum based on our learning themes and year group learning launch pads. Our aim is to ignite a curiosity to learn about religion that will help children understand about faiths, beliefs and how religion has influenced the development of mankind and the society in which we live.
