Other curriculum areas
We follow the Children Leeds Agreed Syllabus for RE, a broad and balanced curriculum, built around three aims. We aim to ensure that all pupils:
- Investigate the beliefs and practices of religions and other world views;
- Investigate how religions and other world views address questions of meaning, purpose and value;
- Investigate how religions and other world views influence morality, identity and diversity.
Our RE curriculum teaches of Christianity, Islam and a non- religious approach throughout all key stages, extending to Judaism and Sikhism in Key Stage 2.
Our teaching and learning is focused around the investigation of key questions, an ‘enquiry model’ with contemporary, relevant and engaging questions to explore. We explore personal questions of meaning, engage with profound issues and explore contemporary questions that face our communities now and in the future.
All our RE teaching and learning upholds the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child article 14: the right to choose your own religion and be taught right and wrong. It aims to help children in their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development and links closely with the British Values.

Modern and Foreign Languages
As part of our school vision for our children to be active global citizens, they all learn to speak, listen to, read and write in the French language. Although it is not compulsory, we begin this learning in Key Stage One with listening to and singing songs and rhymes and saying simple words and phrases. In Key Stage Two this progresses to engaging in conversations, giving opinions, broadening their vocabulary and writing sentences all within themes such as shopping, the weather or being at school.
