Religious Education at Denfield Park
In common with all other schools in Northamptonshire, we follow the updated Northamptonshire Agreed Syllabus for R.E. All year groups from Reception to Year 6 follow the syllabus, and, although R.E. is not compulsory in the Nursery, certain aspects of the curriculum are covered in order to begin to foster an appreciation of other cultures and beliefs in all of our children.
R.E. is taught as far as possible in a cross curricular way, using art, drama and music, as well as more traditional approaches such as writing and drawing. Discussion, incorporating all points of view and an appreciation of other people's beliefs and way of life, is actively encouraged. We arrange visits to places of worship to support the children’s learning, and also invite visitors from different religions to school.
