The children at Winterbourne Earls learn that God loves them and they show it by being loving, forgiving, compassionate and respectful. These core values of love, forgiveness, compassion and hope are interwoven into all aspects of school life and will help prepare all children for their journey through life.
RE has an important part to play as part of a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum to which all pupils are entitled. High quality learning experiences in RE are designed and provided by careful planning through The Wiltshire Agreed Syllabus and supplementing this with material from the Diocese, ‘Discovery RE’ and elsewhere, taking into account the need to offer breadth of content.
In order to make Religious Education a lively, active subject we employ a variety of teaching methods including art, music, discussion, the development of thinking skills, drama, the use of artefacts, pictures, stories, visits, visitors and the use of periods of stillness and reflection.
The teaching of Religious Education is an important part of everyday life at Winterbourne Earls. The children are involved in weekly Religious Education focused sessions and contribute to daily worships to reflect the life and teachings of Jesus and the importance of Christian values for life.
