Religious education (RE) makes a distinctive contribution to a balanced and broadly-based school curriculum which: promotes the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and of society; andprepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. Religious education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It develops pupils' knowledge and understanding of the nature of religion and belief including Christianity, other principal religions, other religious traditions, and world views that offer answers to these challenging questions.
The Religious Education CPD Handbook Introduction Reviewing or creating a scheme of work can often feel like such a daunting task that many subject leaders simply avoid it altogether and continue with a particular programme, long after it has passed its useful life. Another reason for avoidance is that teaching to a familiar scheme may feel comfortable and require less preparation in terms of teaching and assessment. At the other extreme, some subject leaders spend so much time writing detailed schemes from scratch that they have no time for any other part of their role. There is a real danger here of the teacher becoming exhausted, most commonly in the autumn term when they first take on the leadership role.
