Religious Studies

Head of Department: Miss P Osei
email: priscilla.osei@destafford.org.uk

The Religious Education Department at de Stafford is a dynamic and forward thinking department with a full time head of subject and classroom teacher. We seek to ensure that the teaching and learning in Religious Education is as rigorous and relevant to our students as it should be. It is ever more important that RE is taught effectively as the UK becomes increasingly multi-cultural.

We continually update our schemes of work in line with the Surrey Locally Agreed Syllabus, by using Student Voice surveys so we are teaching our students issues that they will find relevant, engaging and challenging. Key Stage 3 thoroughly grounds students in not only the major world religions, but also in the bigger questions in life; such as life after death, terrorism, fashion, reality, moral issues, science and faith and ethics. Students are assessed through a variety of methods including an essay each year to support extended writing. All students are encouraged to participate fully with the subject through using a variety of activities, SEN provision and fostering a safe learning environment where all views are learnt from and respected.

Year 7

Students begin the Autumn term looking at Hinduism, they explore the Key concepts such as imagery and symbolism surrounding Hindu gods and look at the importance of the festival of Diwali.

During the Spring term, students will be looking at Christianity. There is a specific focus on the differences and similarities within Christianity. Students then get the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the construction of their own church, where their imagination is their only limit.

During the summer term students explore Sikhism and the importance of equality this ties together the previous two terms as we explore the concept of equality across the religions.

Year 8

During Year 8 students explore the concept of Life after death. We investigate the differing religious perspectives, following this we go onto look at the Moral issue of Terrorism and the consequences this has within society. Students are taken through the History of Terrorism starting with the Russian Revolution and analyzing terrorism in the current climate. We then look specifically at the efforts of religions. We then seek to build a secure foundation of knowledge on Sikhism to support their impending GSCE. We conclude with Buddhism an adventure into ‘enlightenment’.

Key stage 4

During Key Stage 4 we follow the AQA Religious Studies A, Full course.

Students will focus on Christian and Sikh perspectives.

The course consists of two components:

A) The study of religions: beliefs teachings and practices: Students will look at Christianity and Sikhism; they will then sit a 1 hr 45 minute exam.

B) Thematic studies: Religion and Life/Religion, peace and conflict/Religion crime and punishment/ Religion human rights and social justice. Students will then sit another 1hr 45 minute exam.

The course is designed to stimulate and challenge students.it provides them with a platform to structure their opinions and grow as global citizens .The skills taught and the knowledge gained will have far reaching implications for students beyond GCSE.
