In Hope schools, high quality RE is provided for all pupils, which is inclusive and broad minded. RE in our City of York and North Yorkshire schools is taught in accordance with the local Agreed Syllabus for York and North Yorkshire. Manor Church of England Academy follows the Diocese of York RE syllabus.
Parents do have the right to withdraw pupils from RE lessons, or any part of the RE curriculum: if you wish to do this, please make an appointment with the RE subject leader in school. Hope does not support selective withdrawal from RE. Our schools have a duty to supervise pupils withdrawn from RE, though not to provide additional teaching or to incur extra cost. Where the pupil has been withdrawn, alternative arrangements will be made for RE of the kind the parents/guardians want the pupil to receive. These arrangements will be made by the parents/guardians;- the school is not expected to make these arrangements. This RE could be provided at the school in question, or by another school in the locality. If neither approach is practicable, the pupil may receive external RE teaching as long as the withdrawal does not significantly impact on the child’s attendance.
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)
