At St Stephen's we follow the SDBE Syllabus for RE. The units of study were chosen so that every child in our school receives a high-quality, sequential Religious Education as outlined in the Church of England's Statement of Entitlement.
In our school, the RE curriculum is designed to offer students a comprehensive understanding of Christian belief and practice, emphasising its uniqueness and diversity. Teaching in our school engages with biblical text and theological concepts. Our curriculum challenges students by exploring core religious concepts, fostering dialogue with various religions and worldviews, and helping pupils comprehend the role of foundational texts, beliefs, rituals, and practices in shaping identities across cultures and time. RE holds a prominent place in the curriculum, contributes to British values, and supports holistic development. Learning activities cater to diverse needs, nurturing skills like inquiry, analysis, interpretation, and reflection while providing a safe space for personal exploration and informed dialogue with diverse belief systems.
Below are the units our pupils cover while at St. Stephen's and links to the Attainment Targets for each term.
