Pathway Subject Statement: 

We have adopted the Jigsaw RE scheme throughout Lent Rise School to ensure we follow an inclusive and consistent whole school approach to Religious Education. Jigsaw RE covers Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism, with reference to Humanism. 

Our belief is that when using this model well, children’s critical thinking skills can be developed, their motivation to learn increased, and their knowledge and understanding of, and empathy with people and their worldviews (religious or otherwise) will be enhanced.

This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning their own view of the world and their beliefs and morals. RE does not try to persuade, but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.
