RE (Religious Education at Shire Oak)
At Shire Oak we follow the statutory RE curriculum for maintained schools in Leeds, Bradford, Kirklees and Calderdale. The local Agreed Syllabus is called 'Believing and Belonging.' Religious Education gives a broad understanding of Christianity, world faiths and non-religious beliefs. It is an academic subject, supporting problem solving and critical thinking skills and allowing young people to explore their own responses to life's challenges. RE develops understanding of diversity, empathy and community cohesion, enabling children to flourish as members of a diverse and global society.
