Religion and Philosophy
We want our philosophers to know and understand key religious beliefs and practices from a number of world views. We want them to be able to understand and evaluate the impact belief has on people’s actions in both their religious practices and ethical decisions. They will be able to listen to others, take on differing viewpoints, be able to articulate arguments and form justified conclusions.
Brief overview of thinking behind KS3 cumulation and progression of knowledge
Our RP curriculum’s sequencing introduces students to several different religious and non religious beliefs and/or practices, progressively building on knowledge so students can develop their understanding and ability to evaluate and make informed judgements.
