Our intent, at Jump Primary, is to develop a positive attitude and a love of learning towards Religious Education. We aim to inspire and inform our pupils: giving them the opportunity to learn and reflect upon the different religious experiences people have, and enable them to think beyond their normal daily experiences. The school follows a multi-faith approach and acknowledges and respects that some pupils may not have any religious affiliation at all. We intend to provide a high-quality Religious Education which will support pupils to:
• Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of principle religions represented in Great Britain: Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism and Humanism.
• Develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individual communities, societies and cultures.
• Develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religions and moral issues with reference to the teachings of the religions covered.
• Enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development including British Values.
• Develop positive attitudes and respect towards other people who hold views and beliefs different to their own.
To achieve these attributes, a clear progression of skills is mapped out, in line with the requirements of the Statutory requirements of the Barnsley Agreed RE Syllabus and National Curriculum, which is designed to ensure that children understand and embed key religious concepts. Our rich curriculum, alongside an excellent rangge experiences, ensures that every pupil at Jump Primary School makes excellent progress both academically and personally. Pupils are encouraged to think creatively and critically and to respect others and the enviroments in which they live.
Jump Primary benefits from good links with our local churches: Jump Chapel kindly provide us with monthly assemblies for Christian worship. The school is not affiliated to any particular religion or religious denomination and welcomes people from a range of religious beliefs. Should any parent wish to withdraw their child from acts of worship or RE lessons on the grounds of conscience, please contact the Headteacher so that suitable educational arrangements can be made.
