Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8)

Religious Education enables students to make informed decisions by introducing them to a balance of different thoughts and ideas. Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. It 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 students’ knowledge and understanding of the nature of religion and belief including the six main world religions, and world views 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, teachings, practices and forms of expression, and of the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures.

In Year 7 students are introduced to the six main world religions before focusing on how we, as humans, make moral decisions and what can influence us. We take an in-depth study into the concept of love in Christianity and this underpins the teachings of Jesus before considering the influence of history and tradition on Judaism as a religion and a lifestyle.

In Year 8 students complete three in-depth studies of different areas of religion. The year starts with a focus on the meaning and importance of the Five Pillars of Islam in the Autumn Term. In the Spring Term students consider a belief in no God and how this may impact on relationships between religious and non-religious people. IN the Summer Term students use the knowledge they had acquired during the year to focus on topical issues in the news and how different people may respond to these situations.
