Religion and Worldviews Studies
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.
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.
