Religious Education (R.E.)

At Harris Primary Academy Mayflower our families, staff and pupils are linked to many parts of the world and come from a wide range of faith groups.  We aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all of our pupils and families. We believe that Religious Education (R.E.) provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences at the academy and in the wider world. We aim to create a culture of understanding and tolerance and create a safe space where children feel comfortable to express their beliefs to others.

The academy uses the Thurrock agreed syllabus for religious education, which involves learning about different religions, beliefs, values and traditions through a topic based thematic approach. We address fundamental questions in life, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of spirit.  The syllabus is broadly Christian, however children will develop a sound knowledge of the other major world faiths during their time at Harris Primary Academy Mayflower. In our R.E. lessons children will have the opportunity to reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help children to learn from religions as well as about religions.

As we are living in an increasingly diverse country and we celebrate diversity at Mayflower we hope that all children will fully embrace the Religious Education lessons. At each Key Stage we aim to give our students a real life understanding of the religions we are studying and where possible we try to visit places of worship and invite people belonging to the religions being studied in. In KS1 we have had Christians, Muslims and Hindus come in to talk to the children, and Year 2 students visited the local Gurdwara. At KS2 children have had speakers from both Christianity and Hinduism join them in class.

Religious Education lessons are also supported by our weekly assembly themes to celebrate religious festivals and celebrations. We have an annual assembly schedule and all our parents/carers are informed about curriculum coverage, including R.E. at the beginning of each half term.

Any Parent/Carer wishing to discuss R.E or collective worship, please make an appointment or write to the Principal via Mrs Wallace, our Office Manager at Harris Primary Academy Mayflower, Mayflower Road, Essex RM16 6SA.
