Curriculum planning in religious education

We plan our religious education curriculum in accordance with the Lancashire and Blackpool Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. We ensure that the topics studied in religious education build upon prior learning. We offer opportunities for children of all abilities to develop their skills and knowledge in each unit, and we ensure that the planned progression built into the scheme of work offers the children an increasing challenge as they move through the school.


We carry out the curriculum planning in religious education in three phases (long-term, medium term and short-term). The long-term plan maps the religious education topics studied in each term during each key stage. Our medium term plan gives details of each unit of work for each term. The RE subject leader keeps and reviews these plans on a regular basis.
