RE is an important subject – partly because of its significance in framing current world issues and partly because of the way it can shape one’s identity, beliefs and values.
At Mullion School, we explore the contribution that Religion, Ethics and Philosophy make in the world. Pupils are supported in exploring their own beliefs – whatever they may be – while reflecting on the beliefs and practices of others. Pupils are encouraged to develop critical questioning of their spiritual, social and moral views. Lessons give time and space to think, discuss and challenge.
At Key Stage 3, pupils have one RE lesson each week and follow Cornwall’s Agreed Syllabus (2011 – 2016). Topics for study include Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Secular thinking, Humanism and religion in Cornwall.
In Year 9 students begin their GCSE R.S following AQA syllabus A. This is completed through 2 lessons per week. In Year 10 students continue to study AQA syllabus A through 1 lesson per week. The current Year 11s are finishing their GCSE RS AQA syllabus B in 1 lesson per week.
In RE, we are constantly enthusing pupils in their learning so that they may prepare for the adult world – confident and insightful, open and sensitive towards others and articulate in tackling the spiritual, moral and social questions that will surface again and again in their lives.
