At Pennyman Primary Academy, the aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community. Moreover, it enables pupils to develop respect for and sensitivity to others in particular for those whose faith and beliefs are different from their own, promoting discernment and helping pupils to combat prejudice.


  • The RE curriculum aligns to the Middlesbrough Agreed Syllabus 2020-2025
  • A carefully planned whole school curriculum promotes the progression of computing knowledge and offers the opportunity to revisit and remember previous learning in order to develop understanding further
  • Knowledge organisers outline the key new knowledge for each unit and the prior knowledge needed for pupils to make meaningful connections to new learning
  • The R.E. curriculum provides a range of opportunities through which pupils develop the language to reflect on and make sense of their experiences

Progression within the areas of Christianity and other religions are set out within the RE Knowledge Sequencing Document available in the academy.
