At Manor Infant School we aim to implement a curriculum that is exciting, inspiring, engaging and challenges all learners to work at the limit of their capability to achieve their potential. We aim to ensure High Quality Inclusive Teaching is effective to ensure learning is irresistible and engaging for all learners.
As part of the agreed syllabus for Hampshire, Manor Infant school follows the Living Difference IV programme of study. This syllabus builds on the approach to religious education, enriched by philosophical and theological enquiry, as well as current research. At Manor Infant School we use this syllabus as it confirms our commitment to an education that allows children to recognise the importance of exploring their own lives in relation to what it can mean to live with a religious outlook on life and other ways of life, including those informed by a non-religious perspective.
At Manor we currently teach the Christian and Hindu faith and each half term a different concept is introduced. For example celebration, symbol of light and special places. Following our school vision we ensure that our R.E. curriculum is creative, broad and challenging for each individual.
R.E. and our School Values:
Love and Kindness
R.E. at Manor promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others and teaches the children to better understand themselves. It is with this understanding that they can learn to be caring and kind to themselves and others.
Exploring and Learning
Through R.E. children learn and explore Christianity, Hinduism and other world views. They learn to appraise the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their understanding in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully.
Love of Life and the World
Our curriculum is designed to encourage creativity, imagination, enquiry, discussion, debate and independence. Our aim is to engage our children with an enquiry based approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs and cultural practices. We encourage our children to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences.
