At Bishop's Waltham Junior School, we follow Hampshire County Council’s Agreed Syllabus: Living Difference.
The purpose of this syllabus is to support the children in developing their own patterns of values and principles, and to support their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. A further purpose for RE is to foster mutual understanding between pupils of differing religious and cultural backgrounds.
The children usually study one unit of RE each half-term; these units are based around three of the major world religions. At Bishop's Waltham Junior School, we study Hinduism in Years 3 and 4, and Islam in Years 5 and 6, with Christianity being studied across all 4 years.
