Sir William Robertson Academy’s Religious Studies department follows guidelines given by the Lincolnshire RE syllabus. This is a locally agreed syllabus which takes into account the demographic of the area and the needs of pupils.
The syllabus includes;
A focus on four core concepts: Celebration, Religious Beliefs and Lifestyle, Authority, The Sacred, with ultimate questions woven into the syllabus as a whole.
Two attainment targets for RE: learning about religion and exploring human experience, and Learning from religion and responding to human experience.
In year 7 pupils learn about the Western religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, alongside a Citizenship module about Britishness and multiculturalism.
In year 8 pupils move on to learn about the Eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism, alongside a Citizenship module about finance and money management.
Pupils in year 9 start modules that will count towards their RS GCSE which they take in year 10. All pupils will complete the AQA B Religious Studies GCSE (religion and life issues and religion and morality) in 2017.
