The aims of RE which inform the curriculum are based on the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE, which states that the principle aim of RE 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." (Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus, 2020)
At Bishop Perowne Church of England College we seek to:
Students are introduced to key Christian beliefs, teachings and practices and follow units from the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE. Students engage in a study of Christianity, Buddhism, Sikhism and Islam through a series of themed questions. Students also study PSHE topics related to Relationships, Sex and Health Education as well as our place in the local and global community.
Students continue to study religion and philosophy through key questions alongside PSHE topics. Students continue to study Christianity as their main religion whilst also studying other religious and non-religious world views.
