Statement of Entitlement

Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus. As an Aided School with a Christian foundation, in each year there is a focus on Christianity plus the opportunity for pupils to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religion and belief.

Religious Education at Dereham Church of England Junior Academy uses an enquiry based approach to learning. This approach enables pupils to focus on a key enquiry question, which explores theological and philosophical concepts and social studies within religion and belief. A range of teaching strategies are used to ensure learning is challenging and relevant including the use of art, music, thinking skills, artefacts and stories.

Religious Education is taught within blocks over the academic year.
