Religious Studies

The Religious Studies Curriculum at Sir William Burrough School comes in three broad themes as follows:

  • Key Stage One: Stories from different religions
  • Lower Key Stage Two: Places and Celebrations in different religions
  • Upper Key Stage Two: Concepts and Beliefs of different religions

The intent of this curriculum design is to move from the literary basis for religious beliefs through the acts and buildings of the world’s major religions and eventually to the philosophical concepts underlying all religious beliefs and the way in which children respond to and live in the world. It is tied to our assembly cycle, which covers many of the celebrations and special days of the Abrahamic religions (Judiasm, Islam and Christianity) and touches on some others including Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism.
