Staff and children at - ------------------------------ School are enjoying teaching and learning Christianity and Judaism and are now using the new Agreed Syllabus for Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton which was published in July 2004 called Living Difference. Time for religious education It is recommended that the following minimum hours should be devoted to religious education, and the programmes of study in Living Difference have been designed with these time recommendations in mind: Key Stage 1: 36 hours per year. The purpose of religious education The purpose of religious education (RE) in Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton is to support students in developing their own coherent patterns of values and principles, and to support their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. This entails encouragement of each student to interpret and respond to a variety of concepts, beliefs and practices within religions and to their own and others’ cultural and life experiences. It is important that students progressively develop the capacities to interpret, evaluate and respond to differing values and beliefs. This can be achieved through extending their thinking and analytical skills and their creative, imaginative and emotional development. A further purpose for RE is to foster mutual understanding between students of differing religious and cultural backgrounds. The New Syllabus provides a new emphasis on the process of learning and teaching based on conceptual enquiry and the importance of pupils and students developing their own beliefs and values. A methodology for teaching and learning Students can be guided to enter into the process at key points. There are two obvious starting points – students’ own responses or the enquiry into religious concepts. Students are, however, required to complete all the elements of the sequence in order to make sense of what they are studying and its implication for themselves and others. Apply their own beliefs and values to situations in their own and others’ lives Enquire into religious/non-religious concepts Contextualise what is being studied in religious practice and belief and specific situations Evaluate what has been discussed, taught and learnt.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
