Statement of intent
Parkgate Primary recognises the effect that an inclusive teaching style can have on a pupils’ progress, both inside and outside of the school environment. At our school, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which encompasses spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, in accordance with the locally-agreed syllabus of Cheshire West and Chester.
The school has created this policy in order to ensure that:
To introduce a variety of faiths and world views, through stories and role-play
Key Stage 1
To become aware that there is more than one religion and different peoples have different ways of following their faith and beliefs.
Key Stage 2
To use a variety of source materials to help the children understand the faiths and beliefs of others. Use this information to make connections between different stories / sayings and what they teach followers of different religions / worldviews.
To have an empathy for the religious and non-religious views held by members of our society and use these to explore and make personal informed responses to ultimate questions.
