At Kenilworth, we follow the Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
This revised statutory document aims to ensure that Hertfordshire pupils develop as tolerant young people with respect and understanding of the views of others, including the beliefs and practices of religions and other world views.
• aims to ensure that all pupils develop knowledge and understanding of sources of wisdom and their impact whilst exploring personal and critical responses.
• encourages schools to spend a proportion of their time allocation for Religious Education reflecting on the religious make-up of their own cohort
• offers eight key areas of religion for study with clear progression across all year groups.
• offers schools the flexibility to devise their own key questions and design their own units and choose when to teach them
• removes levels of assessment in line with the rest of the curriculum
• offers a flexible model of assessment through expected learning outcomes
• enables teachers to recognise what it means to be ‘religiously and theologically literate’ at each key stage
• is accompanied by a non-statutory additional guidance document ‘Religion for Today and Tomorrow’ which will enable pupils to gain a coherent understanding of the principal religions and worldviews represented in Great Britain
RE - End of Key Phase Outcomes
At Kenilworth Primary we believe that PE and Sport play an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change children's lives for the better. We receive Sports Premium funding and utilise this in many ways including the provision of specialist coaching in gymnastics and other sports. We run a range of extra-curricular clubs including football and dance. All of the children have the opportunity to participate in numerous competitions either in school or representing the school in inter-school competitions.
We use a tailored scheme from the PE Hub as the basis of our PE curriculum.
At Kenilworth Primary School, we have chosen French for our Modern Foreign Language. We use the scheme Language Angels to teach MFL.
Why Teach Modern Foreign Languages
At Kenilworth, we want all children to realise their place in the wider world and learning a language is a fantastic way to open the world to our pupils. French is spoken in five different continents and is a great language for opening the door to other languages (particularly Spanish, Portugese, Italian and Romanian). It also supports children to unlock their own language – both vocabulary and spellings – as a lot of French words have been amalgamated into the English language.
Coverage of Curriculum
We have tailor picked units to ensure that we cover the National Curriculum for French. For more information, read our
At Kenilworth, we teach PSHE using the Jigsaw scheme of work. It combines Personal, Social, Health and Economics education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development (mindfulness) together. This is a comprehensive whole-school approach from Nursery to Year 6. There are 6 Puzzles (units/themes) throughout the year and each year group teaches the same Puzzle at the same time as the underlying themes are the same, however the lesson content in each year group will be age appropriate. The 6 themes covered are:
- Being Me In My World
- Celebrating Difference
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
