Simply the BEST!




At Bentley High Street the principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.




R.E is taught in week blocks across the year, this allows for children to achieve greater depth and understanding in their learning. We use the Doncaster RE syllabus, you can find a copy at the bottom of the page.

Curriculum Impact 2019-2020


Strengths of the subject:

Areas for Development:


  • There are more children now working at greater depth in all year groups/
  • Year 2 is showing a positive trend in all areas.










  • Girls are outperforming boys in all key stage 2. Are boys therefore losing interest in the RE curriculum when entering year 3? What are the barriers? Explore with pupil and staff voice. Will the new curriculum and lesson suggestions help with this?
  • Data is very variable in some year groups from mid-year data. With low numbers hitting expected levels. There are some big changes, in Year 4 and Year 5 especially. Are the assessment statements fit for purpose and do they match the curriculum overview closely? Revisit and refine with the new curriculum taking place in September.

Pupil premium pupils are not making good progress. Only year 2 showing a positive trend. The gap between PP and non- PP in some year groups is widening. Why is this?




  • There are no events for the next 10 weeks.
