At Littletown we have been awarded The Kirklees RE award. This award is designed to recognise commitment to Religious Education and the promotion of tolerance of diversity. The award celebrates that an effective RE curriculum is in place and affirms the quality of leadership and the learning of pupils.
“I love RE because I like learning about other religions. It sometimes teaches me more than the church” – year 5 pupil
“I like RE – we take part in discussions and share our feelings and views” – year 6 pupil
“I enjoy RE, it’s good to learn about other people” – year 2 pupil
Religious Education ‘should explore the important role that religious and non-religious worldviews play in all human life. This is an essential area of study if pupils are to be well prepared for life in a world where controversy over such matters is pervasive and where many people lack the knowledge to make their own informed decisions. It is a subject for all pupils, whatever their own family background and personal beliefs and practices.’
(Commission on RE, September 2018.)
At Littletown JIN School we follow the guidelines outlined in the Kirklees Agreed Syllabus called ‘Believing and Belonging’ launched September 2019. Because of this, the main religions studied, as stated in the syllabus will be, at KS1: Christianity, Islam and 1 other non-religious approach and KS2: Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Judaism and 1 other non-religious approach.
