Our Cultural Capital Curriculum Offer

Religious Education

For further information, please click the following link: RE at Florence Melly.

At Florence Melly Community Primary School, we value Religious Education. WE ARE THEOLOGISTS! Religious education contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. In RE children learn about and from religions and world views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. They learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response and to agree or disagree respectfully. Teaching therefore should equip pupils with systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and world views, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities. It should develop in pupils an aptitude for dialogue so that they can participate positively in our society with its diverse religions and world views. Pupils should gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts, sources of wisdom and authority and other evidence. They learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.

SMSC

At Florence Melly Community Primary School, we value SMSC. WE ARE INCLUSIVE and DIVERSE! We actively promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at our school. This involves collective worship, establishing a strong school ethos supported by effective relationships throughout the school, and providing relevant activities beyond the classroom to ensure pupils’ SMSC development. Through a high-quality SMSC curriculum we promote the fundamental British values. Our pupils understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. Our pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance. Our DREAMS core values underpin all aspects of school life. We challenge opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values.
