BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL IS PART OF

Religious Studies

Curriculum aim

All students study Religious Studies for one hour a week in Key stage 3 and Key Stage 4 in line with the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus. Religious studies is taught alongside and compliments student learning in Personal, Social, Citizenship, Health and Economic Education (PSCHEe). In Key Stage 4 Religious Studies follows the AQA Short Course. Religious Studies is part of the successful Humanities Faculty and enjoys opportunities for cross-curricular links including study of the Holocaust with History in Year 9.

The Religious Studies curriculum offers a wide range of opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding of different religious beliefs, teachings and practices.

Teachers create a climate for learning based on trust and respect which inspires our learners to explore their own ideas about religion, society, spirituality, philosophy and ethics. The learning environment allows sensitive subject matter such as divorce, life after death, why people suffer and the consequences of war to be discussed in a thoughtful and mature manner. Students are encouraged to share their opinions, ask questions and respond to the views of others. This stimulating and engaging environment supports students in demonstrating empathy, compassion and a sense of justice.

 

Key stage 3 & 4 core Religious Studies topics include:

  • Belief in God
  • What is right and good, what is wrong and evil?
  • Rites of Passage from different religious perspectives
  • Living in Multi-Faith Britain
  • Christianity Beliefs and Teachings
  • Judaism Beliefs and Teachings (includes a linked unit with History on the Holocaust)
  • Relationships and Families
  • Religion, Peace and Conflict
