At Phoenix Infant Academy, we deliver a diverse and engaging R.E. curriculum. This, we do, through our commitment to offer first-hand experiences to all children, both in and out the classroom, our engagement with parents/carers, as well as ensuring our non-specialist teaching staff have a secure understanding of the curriculum they teach. All members of our school community are encouraged to discuss their faith with the children; after all, they are the experts!
Using Cornerstones Curriculum 22, Phoenix Infant Academy provides a Religious Education curriculum that helps build pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills over time; delivers clear expectations on what pupils will know and be able to do with their knowledge and skills at curriculum ‘end points’; and does so within the context of our specific school community.
Through such projects as 'Harvest' (Year 1) and 'Jumu'ah' (Year 2), skills and knowledge including expressing ideas sensitively and exploring questions surrounding faith, are taught and revisited.
We pride ourselves on the experiences and provision we offer our children which provide them with further opportunities to consider those 'big questions' regarding faith and religion. This includes external visits from faith leaders, cross-curricular opportunities, visits to local places of worship and internal celebrations.
