Bader Primary School follows the Stockton Agreed Syllabus for Religion & Worldviews Studies-2020 onwards. It is a progression syllabus; teaching and learning builds up to a point of understanding. Progression is about knowing where you`ve come from and knowing where you`re going-building understanding through a series of small steps. Planning is at the core of a progression curriculum.

Impact Statement

At Bader Primary School, Religion & Worldviews Studies promotes the spiritual, moral and cultural development of children. It helps to prepare them for the experiences and responsibilities of life, and helps to develop an understanding of the world in which we live.  Religion and Worldviews Studies helps pupils to grow in understanding of their world, to make connections and be empowered by their understanding.

Monitoring is used throughout the academic year, to gauge the impact of the curriculum design across school.

Learning is measured through analysis of pupils` acquisition of knowledge, understanding, and the application of skills across topics. This includes making connections among different religions, beliefs, values and traditions.

This is achieved through half-termly assessments of children’s learning, by the teacher, through regular Book Looks and Pupil Voice. It is, also, measured more informally by something a pupil says, or does, which provides information and insight to the teacher.

The impact of the curriculum is seen in:-

Visits to local places of worship, and visits to school by representatives of local religious groups, enhance the learning experience for children by giving them first-hand experience. It is part of school’s provision for the children.
