At Park End Primary School, we intend to deliver a high-quality Religious Education curriculum, which inspires pupils to be tolerant, respectful members of the wider community and celebrates the culture and diversity of people in Middlesbrough, Britain and the wider world.

At Park End Primary School, we intend to:
Our Religious Education curriculum provides pupils with a positive context within which the diversity of cultures, beliefs and values can be celebrated and explored. The teaching of Religious Education is a statutory requirement for all maintained schools across England. Park End Primary School’s Religious Education curriculum has been developed in line with the Middlesbrough locally agreed syllabus for 2020-2025. We build on statutory content already outlined in the locally agreed syllabus and follow the ‘RE Today’ scheme of work to provide consistency and progression throughout our school.
Our Religious Education curriculum is implemented through three ‘Big Ideas’, which are constantly revisited throughout teaching sequences in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2:
Our whole school approach to the teaching and learning of Religious Education involves the following:
Religious Education is taught for 36 hours in Key stage 1 and 45 hours in Key Stage 2, usually in a weekly lesson. Pupils take part in daily collective worship throughout school, which is broadly Christian in nature. Parents have the right to request to withdraw their child from the Religious Education curriculum. Parents themselves then become responsible for the alternative education.
The Religious Education curriculum is well planned and resourced. We will measure the impact of our curriculum through the following measures:
