How do we approach RE at Northwood?

At Northwood we follow the locally agreed Darlington RE syllabus which provides a balanced and broadly based curriculum promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, social, mental and physical development of pupils and of society.


RE in the Agreed Syllabus is based on:

  • Knowledge and Understanding of Religion

  • Critical Thinking

  • Personal Reflection


Our syllabus is designed to ensure our children develop knowledge and understanding of religions, including, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.

Teaching RE prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. RE encourages pupils to develop positive attitudes to their own and others' beliefs and values, in a classroom climate that recognises and respects differences.

Self-awareness, respect, open-mindedness and appreciation and wonder are an integral part of the RE curriculum.

At Northwood, we believe that RE makes an important contribution to promoting British Values and understanding the impact it has for individuals and communities.
