Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) enables pupils to investigate and respond to fundamental questions of life and living and be able to express and justify their own opinions. It helps our pupils develop knowledge, understanding and skills when considering Christian and other responses to moral, ethical and philosophical issues.

DEEP Curriculum Overview

Within RE we have found that pupils often find it easier to understand an issue when they look at it initially from a personal perspective.  Throughout their time at Venerable Bede CE Academy, pupils will develop their discussion, debate and argument-formation skills, in line with our DEEP curriculum.  Pupils will also be involved in research tasks and problem-solving activities.  Wherever possible we try to use media stimulus (Film, TV, music for example) to engage pupils in their learning.

The DEEP curriculum in RE is a five-year journey with each stage carefully designed to help pupils progress seamlessly onto next steps.

All pupils complete the full course Religious Studies GCSE from EDUQAS, Route A.
