In Church of England schools, where pupils and staff come from all faiths and none, religious education (RE) is a highly valued academic subject that enables understanding of how religion and beliefs affect our lives. At the heart of RE in church schools is the teaching of Christianity and opportunity for pupils to learn about other faiths and world-views.


At Yardley Gobion,

Pupils can expect that a Church school RE curriculum will engage and challenge them through an exploration of core concepts and questions. They can expect Church schools to provide meaningful and informed dialogue with a range of religions and worldviews. There should be

opportunities for them to understand the role of foundational texts, beliefs, rituals, and practices and how they help form identity in a range of religions and worldviews. Pupils should explore how these may change in different times, places and cultures.


Religious Education in Church of England Schools - A Statement of Entitlement 2019

As a maintained school we have a legal requirement to follow the Locally Agreed Syllabus for RE for Northamptonshire. This ensures that we cover all the required elements of RE learning, across several world faiths, with a larger focus being on Christianity.

We use Understanding Christianity to plan and deliver our Christian units of learning. 

Understanding Christianity is a resource to support the teaching of Christianity in religious education in all schools.

  • Develops pupils' own thinking and understanding of Christianity.
  • Explores the significant theological concepts within Christianity as part of developing pupils wider religious, theological and cultural literacy.
  • Supports teachers in developing their own knowledge and understanding of Christianity theology to be able to teach with confidence.

We also make use of the Peterborough Diocese RE Curriculum, which provides with even further support to ensure our RE lessons are times for enquiry, enjoyment and ever deepening understanding of faith and believers.

​We ensure that time is given for RE, above that required by law. We enhance our curriculum with termly World Faith Days, whcih give us chance to look at certain aspects of faith in more detail as a whole school. Please see the overview of this years days below.

Below are the curriculum cycle downloads related to delivery of Religious Education across the school which covers a two year rolling program. For 2020/21 we will be following Cycle A and for 2021/22 Cycle B
