Life, Religion and Ethics (LRE)
Intent: The Big Ideas in LRE at Atherton High
A curriculum that strives to contribute to a pupil’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development; to equip pupils with the knowledge and skills to engage with religious, ethical issues and worldviews; developing a sound knowledge and understanding of a variety of religious, and non-religious, traditions and cultures.
LRE curriculum aims to:
- Develop strong religious literacy
- Inspire curiosity
- Develop knowledge of world religious, and non-religious, beliefs and traditions
- Be culturally and ethically relevant
Woven through the LRE curriculum is the exploration of three disciplines: learning through the lens of:
- Theology – Believing
- Philosophy (& ethics)- Thinking
- Human/social science – Living
We expect our pupils to know what religion is through:
- The study of Christianity (as the main religious tradition in the UK) and Islam (Abrahamic religions) and Hinduism (Dharmic religion); to know key beliefs and practices of the followers of these religions, reflecting that Britain is a diverse community.
- Comparing and contrasting key religious beliefs from different religious traditions, and non-religious traditions (Humanism), to explore how different people see and respond to the world; to promote tolerance & respect.
- Considering big ethical and philosophical questions in life, from religious and non-religious viewpoints, to develop an understanding of the world in which we live, and to inspire curiosity about the world.
- The development of personal viewpoints, enabling pupils to articulate and respect different views, and to think critically about big issues.
- Taking part in balanced, well-informed conversations about religion, belief, and life issues.
