At Borders Partnership, we use the Norfolk Syllabus to inform our RE curriculum.
RE is about developing religious literacy, therefore our curriculum promotes an understanding of religion and worldviews which best fulfils this purpose. This is one rooted in a multi-disciplinary understanding of the subject. This provides a balanced diet ensuring that pupils are seeing religion and worldviews through different lenses, and places RE within a strong, and well-established academic tradition.
In the Norfolk Syllabus, RE is rooted in three key disciplines or disciplinary fields. These are theology, philosophy and the human/social sciences.
