With oversight and support from our Senior Leadership team subject leaders oversee and monitor the intent, implementation and impact of their subject.

Intent – The ambition and principles of our curriculum for our children. The curriculum content we expect children to learn. What we expect children to know. There is additional information on our intent – link to intent page 

Implementation – How the intentions are realised. The sequence and strategies used to ensure children know and remember more. There is additional information on our implementation  – link to implementation pages 

Impact – How we check and see if children know what we expect them to and how we help them further if needed. How knowledge and skills learnt improved and enriches their lives socially, emotionally, spiritually as well as academically.

Understanding Christianity

We have actively chosen to use this substantial resource that supports the teaching of Christianity in Religious Education.

The key purpose of this project is to help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.
