Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’


RE in KS1: Programme of Study

What do pupils get out of RE at this key stage?

Pupils should develop their knowledge and understanding of religions and worldviews, recognising their local, national and global contexts. They should use basic subject specific vocabulary. They should raise questions and begin to express their own views in response to the material they learn about and in response to questions about their ideas.



The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.


RE teaching and learning should enable pupils to…

A. Know about and

understand a range of

religions and worldviews.

B. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance

and impact of religions and worldviews.

C. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews.
