What does RE look like at the Revel?
RE is a vital curriculum area at the Revel that contributes to the development and preservation of the spiritual and moral ethos of our school. It is a vehicle that encourages and equips young minds to ask questions and seek truth, in all spheres of life. RE is taught weekly with a systematic and thematic approach through half-termly themes based upon the Warwickshire locally agreed syllabus and the Understanding Christianity syllabus. We believe that RE should be active, creative and fun therefore we offer lots of opportunities for children to explore faith through the arts and literature.
The curriculum teaches children about the major faiths around the world and gives them both an understanding and appreciation of different believes and cultures. As part of this, we also celebrate significant religious festivals such as Eid al Fitr and Diwali. We have specific lessons, assemblies and other opportunities such as dance workshops.
Our children celebrate Christian festivals at the village churches closest to our three sites. Key Stage 1 and 2 children regularly visit St Edith's church in Monks Kirby, our Reception children visit St Joseph's in Brinklow and our nursery children have opportunities to visit All Saints' church in Harborough Magna.
The children also take part in regular assemblies led by both the Church of England vicar and the Catholic parish priest. The Revel school is unique as it is Church of England school with Catholic provision and Catechesis.
The school provides further Catholic provision through it's curriculum and also prepares children to take part in their First Holy Communion.
