Our Vision at Castleview

At Castleview School, we follow the Discovery RE approach to Religious Education. This is an enquiry-based learning approach from Foundation Stage to Year 6. Our teaching of religious education aims to support and extend the children's knowledge of Christianity and other world religions, such as Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Judaism. The children investigate and reflect on ‘big questions’ which cover the three key areas: believing, behaving and belonging. Children explore religion through stories, creative writing, art, drama and artefacts. These enquiry-based learning sessions support the teacher to deliver engaging and challenging RE lessons, which are taught for one hour a week. 

Curriculum Overview

We provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable RE curriculum for all pupils which is ambitious, broad and balanced to ensure a high-quality RE education. We intend for our curriculum to be stimulating and creative to meet the needs of all learners. Our curriculum is coherently planned to provide sequenced skills for future learning. If you wish to find out more about the Discovery RE themes, please look at the guides below.

Enrichment Opportunities

Wherever possible, Religious Education enrichment opportunities are taken at Castleview School. Culture Day (celebrating each other's faiths) and encouraging everyone to openly share their own experiences with others are two examples of these days. All religions, cultures, and communities are respected and treated with care.
