Religious Education

Religious Education Intent Statement

At Boston Pioneers Academy, we aim to develop pupils who are religiously literate and are able to hold balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief. A bespoke framework for the teaching of RE has been devised for our Academy in line with the requirements of the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus. 

RE at Boston Pioneers Academy will:

  • Develop our children’s’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions and world views
  • Focus on concepts as well as content
  • Explore authentic religious material, e.g. sacred texts
  • Reflect diversity in terms of the changing religious landscape of the UK so that our children are prepared for life in modern Britain
  • Engage and challenge pupils, encouraging them to ask thoughtful questions
  • Reflect children’s own experiences and provide a safe space for discussion
  • Consider the increase in the number of people with non-religious beliefs and identities
  • Provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development
  • Help to prepare children for adult life: enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity for others
  • Include visitors from places of worship within our community to widen pupils’ understanding
  • Include visiting places of worship to gain a greater understanding of what faith means to different people
