At Goodwin Academy, the principal aim of Religious Education drop down days are to engage pupils in systematic enquiry in to significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.
The RE curriculum at Goodwin Academy has been designed to develop attitudes such as respect, care and concern, all qualities that are valued in a broad range of career pathways. Careers such as the Public Services, where working with diverse communities requires an appreciation and understanding of differing lifestyles.
The skills and knowledge that our curriculum encompasses enables students to develop transferable skills that support any career choice, in addition the range of topics covered by the programme at Goodwin, aims to develop cultural capital, curiosity and wonder, fairness and self-understanding, giving our young people the powerful knowledge required to move to their next steps.
FBV is at the core of the curriculum at Goodwin Academy. During students’ time studying RE, they will be given the opportunity to understand why Britain has developed in the society they now see. Throughout the RE and wider curriculum we look explicitly at all of the Fundamental British Values.
