How is RE taught at Oakwood?

Children are taught a RE topic every half term through either weekly or blocked lessons using Hampshire’s Living Difference III syllabus. The 1996 Education Reform Act stated that RE is a statutory subject for all schools. At Key Stage 1, the children study Christianity and Hinduism, at Lower Key Stage 2 Christianity and Judaism and Upper Key Stage 2 Christianity and Islam. We have introduced the topic of Humanism for Upper Key Stage 2, as we feel it is relevant to the children and families within our school. The children also take part in an annual Question of Faith day linked to one of their topics delivered by Southampton City Mission.

On top of taught RE lessons, the children take part in Collective Worship as a Whole School, phase or class, including Easter and Christmas services. Oakwood has a good relationship with the local church and children visit the Church as well as welcoming the Vicar in assemblies.
