Religious Education

The academy follows the Lincolnshire Locally Agreed Syllabus for RE. The teaching of Religious Education in this academy is non-denominational. It is informing children about world religions and is not about imparting a faith.

Our pupils will study the Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. Other world religions and world views are explored. Children will develop a greater understanding of other cultures and global diversity.

The Religious Education (RE) curriculum at Macaulay encourages religious literacy through a balanced RE curriculum. This is explored through three core disciplines; theology, philosophy, human and social sciences. We want to our pupils to reflect on the importance of their own beliefs and the beliefs in the lives of believers and so that their own personal, spiritual and moral development will are developed.

Language acquisition and broadening vocabulary is fundamental in our approach. We encourage pupils to describe, analyse, appraise, explain and appreciate world religions and beliefs. We encourage positive attitudes of openness, sensitivity and tolerance towards people, the diversity which exists within and between communities and beliefs and customs that may be different to their own. We acknowledge that our children live in a rising diverse community and we want them to appreciate and value the benefits of diverse and inclusive communities.
