Our Learning‎ > ‎

RE

Dore Primary School has been named as a good practice school in Religious Education. We follow the Sheffield Agreed Syllabus (see file below) provided by SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education.) The HT is a HT representative on SACRE.  During 2013-2014 DPS is a lead school helping to revise the Sheffield Agreed Syllabus.
 
Our school values and celebrates our growing diversity with the school community.  We are able to learn much from each other. See pupil-led work in Y4.
 
Every parent has a right to withdraw their child from RE. Please see the file below this page for further information. If you wish to withdraw your child from RE or an aspect of this important curriculum work, then you must put this request in writing to the Headteacher please.
 
Ofsted Report 2009 - 'Outstanding' - Grade 1 - The extent of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  The report states:

"The majority of parents and carers hold the school and its leadership in high regard and typically comment that, ‘Senior leaders inject a dynamic and progressive ethos and a genuine concern for the children’s spiritual and social welfare.’

Well-executed projects take pride of place in classrooms, such as the eye-catching Year 6 project books featuring different faiths and cultures.

Pupils are highly reflective and develop a keen interest in moral and ethical issues. For example, they think deeply about their own and others’ experiences during philosophy circle sessions and draw logical conclusions from evidence.

The school promotes equality of opportunity and tackles discrimination well. There is a strong regard for human rights and no room for stereotyping.

The school is outward looking and has a good understanding of the local context. Increasingly, it looks beyond its own school community in order to ensure that pupils develop an awareness of different faiths and cultures, both in other parts of Britain and globally. The headteacher encourages active partnerships with other organisations and disseminates best practice generously."

We have a planning matrix in place for both KS1 and KS2. See files below. From September 2014, our New Agreed Syllabus for Sheffield will be in place. Joanne Smith (Y5) has been acting in an advisory role, alongside Mrs. Hopkinson with SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education), to help to develop the content of the Agreed Syllabus for all Sheffield schools. The launch of this exciting scheme is due to take place in July of this year!
