At Moor Green Primary Academy, we believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn about different religions, so that they can understand the world around them as well as the community that we live in.

We embrace the fact that we live in a multi-cultural community, and our celebration and respect of the many religions followed by pupils and pa ents is intertwined in everyday life at Moor Green.  Our Curriculum is designed to give all pupils, particularly the most disadvantaged and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. It is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment.

At Moor Green Primary Academy, we follow the SACRE Birmingham agreed syllabus for Religious Education.

Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. Pupils also have the opportunity to develop their own philosophical voice during their time at Moor Green, as well as key skills such as thinking, researching, evaluating, reflecting and empathising. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. Parents, members of staff and pupils are invited to share their values and celebrate with their peers.

Our Religious Education curriculum is enhanced further with trips to places of worship in our local area and visits from religious leaders in the local community, and the Dispositions form discussion points in daily Reflection Times and weekly Phase assembly themes.  Wherever possible, links are made between Religious Education and other curriculum subjects.
