Religious Education (RE) at Great Kimble C of E School is at the heart of all areas of learning. Our School Mission is to provide a rich curriculum where children are educated to become confident, happy and successful learners within a caring Christian community.
Our Christian Values: Respect, Thankfulness, Endurance, Forgiveness, Love and Hope are embedded in all aspects of our curriculum. Each half-term we focus on one of our values and they underpin our teaching and learning. Together with our Ethos and School Vision they help to provide an environment that encourages our children to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community, now and throughout their lives.
At Great Kimble we also actively promote a ‘growth mindset’ approach which enables our children to become resilient learners and develop positive attitudes towards a challenge. This is a shining example of the Christian value of Endurance.
We enjoy close links with our local Reverend, participate in monthly Wednesday Worships led by the pupils at our neighbouring Church and follow the RE Schemes of Work set and provided by the Oxford Diocese.
Daily acts of Collective Worship provide spiritual, social and moral guidance and a time to reflect. The themes are linked to our Christian Values and each week Picture News resources are used to introduce current affairs. The children enjoy learning about a wide range of religious events, singing, being involved in prayers and sharing their personal experiences.
Our PSHE programme of study complements RE, helping children to understand how they are developing personally and socially, as well as giving them the confidence to tackle many moral, social, spiritual and cultural issues that are part of everyday life.
We believe our RE curriculum inspires and engages children in real-life learning opportunities, fostering a Love of learning in RE and equipping them with the skills to be respectful and understanding of other faiths.
