Curriculum intent


At St Nicolas' we follow the Oxford Diocese RE curriculum. We believe that it is important for all our pupils to learn from and about religion, so they can understand the world around them.


Our RE lessons are intended to offer a broad and rich RE curriculum to allow for coverage of the areas prescribed; to allow for a variety of ways to explore religions, their community and personal development and wellbeing.


The lessons have an intention of providing a high quality, coherent and progressive experience of the subject, with scope for cross-curricular learning.


Through each unit, children will know about and understand a range of religions and world views. They will be able to identify, investigate and respond to a variety of issues. Spiritual Moral Social and Cultural development, personal growth and community cohesion are featured throughout each strand and are there to ensure 

opportunities for children to develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect on and relate their learning in RE to their own experiences.


The intent is to make sure that children understand the relevance of RE in today’s modern world and how it affects our lives.
