Religious Education

Our Religious Education Teaching

At St. Oswald’s C of E Primary School we teach Religious Education using the RE syllabus ‘Questful RE’ by Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education. Building on the foundation of both the 2007 and 2013 syllabuses the syllabus has been updated and redesigned to bring it in line with current best practice and pedagogical strategies. By embracing the explicit teaching of Christian concepts and God’s big salvation story, it is hoped that the content of this syllabus will give pupils a deeper understanding of Christianity.

Teaching allocation:

In Key stage 1 RE is taught for at least 36 hours per year which is 5% of allocated curriculum time.

80% of this time focuses on Christianity and 20% on the teaching about other faiths.

Therefore, pupils should have experienced at least 14 hours of teaching and learning time focussed on faiths other than Christianity by the time they leave Key Stage 1.

In Lower and Upper Key Stage 2 RE is taught for at least 45 hours per year which is 5% of allocated curriculum time. 80% of this time focuses on Christianity and 20% on the teaching about other faiths.
