At Ely St John's our RE curriculum is designed to run alongside the Cambridgeshire Agreed Syllabus for RE. The Syllabus is updated every 5 years and we adjust our plans accordingly when this happens.
Our RE units are planned using a Thematic Approach whereby students revisit and build on knowledge learnt through these different themes as they move through the school. The 6 themes are:
  • Celebrations/Festivals
  • Our World Around Us
  • Special Places
  • Creation
  • Substantive Knowledge
  • Important People
Below is the overview for the teaching of RE across the school.
