Religious Education

RE curriculum Intent statement

At Chevening our Religious education curriculum (RE) has an important role in
reflecting the Christian character and vision of our school.

Our RE curriculum is designed to give children a broad and enlightened view of
beliefs of different faiths, teaching them about acceptance and tolerance
through a range of activities. This teaching helps the children to focus on their
own spiritual understanding and awareness of religion as part of their culture
and identity. We want our children to grow not only in awareness of their own
faith, but in respectful awareness of the other faiths within the global
community. Our children are given opportunities to question and consider
different viewpoints, thus developing understanding and insight into
experiences that differ or are similar to their own. We intend for our children
to leave Chevening as religiously literate about Christianity and informed and
respectful about other faiths.

At Chevening, we follow the Rochester diocese: Understanding Christianity
curriculum which encourages an enquiry based approach for children to
explore their faith and the connections that can be made between theological
concepts in the Bible and their daily lives. This curriculum is not limited to the
study of Christian text as we also study the faiths of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism,
Hinduism and Sikhism. Lessons allow the children to explore their own British
values as well as the values of the people they will meet, work and live
alongside in their future lives.

Our school values are integral to our spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC)
curriculum, RE curriculum and Christian development. From our daily Acts of
Worship through playtime and lesson time, we are guided by the values of:
love, compassion, faith, honesty, courage, perseverance, forgiveness and
. Children and adults alike search for these values in themselves and
others and look for ways that these can be further expressed in their lives. Our
aim for our children is to help them develop into courageous advocates of their
faith and belief, ready to search out opportunities to take a role in local and
global communities.
