At Wybunbury Delves we aim to 'Light the spark for a love of learning and of life' and
believe Religious Education is a subject which offers the very best opportunities to achieve this.
We adopt SPARK approach to learning to foster and maintain children's curiosity in the world
Religious Education is taught in a way that reflects the overall aims, values, culture, and philosophy of our Church school.
Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave.
Religious education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It develops pupils' knowledge and understanding of the nature of religion and belief including Christianity, other principal religions, and religious traditions that offer answers to these challenging questions. It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development. It enhances awareness and understanding of religions and beliefs and the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities, and cultures.
As a faith school, we follow the Chester Diocesan Scheme of work on a two-year cycle.
This Academic year (2020-202) we are on cycle B.
The aims of Religious Education in our school are:
to 'light the spark for a love of learning and of life'
to support children and young people in reflecting upon, developing, and affirming their
own beliefs, values, and attitudes, through an exploration of shared human experiences
and of the place and significance of religion in the contemporary world.
to contribute to the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development of our children.
to develop and accurately use Religious language and vocabulary.
