Religion, Philosophy and Ethics

In KS4 Religious Studies at Woodeaton we try to develop the pupil’s awareness of the religious, spiritual, social, moral and cultural dimension of everyday human experiences. There are lots of opportunities for whole class discussions where pupils are encouraged to think, discuss, challenge, question and reflect on a wide range of contemporary moral issues.  Pupils will learn about God, but also about authority, methods of worship, beliefs, values and truths and how each of these things affect the ways people behave in everyday life. In learning about these, pupils will also be able to make connections to other areas of the curriculum such as Music, History Literature, Art and Citizenship.


Key Stage 4 Religious Studies

In Years 10 and 11, pupils follow a Humanities course designed by the Welsh exam board to expand and develop their knowledge and understanding of different religions. The course, (a one hour lesson per week) builds upon the Religious Education that the children have received in Key Stage 3. The points that the students accrue when studying R.E can be combined with points from courses in History and Geography, in order to achieve an Award, Certificate or Diploma in Entry Pathways Humanities.
