The diocesan syllabus sets out the overview of content for Christianity and other world faiths at Key Stage 2.
Schools can also link to schemes of work in Christianity and several major world faiths.
Schools, guided by governors, need to select which world religions to teach and to decide what to teach about them. This will entail selecting from and adapting the schemes of work on Christianity and the other religions.
Guidance is also given on levels and expectations of pupils’ work to aid teachers plan suitable activities, assess progress and attainment and report on these to parents.
Sample class recording forms based on the schemes of work have been provided so that teachers can quickly note children who are working towards the expectations or going well beyond. Those who are not recorded (probably the majority) can be seen to be meeting expectations. Teachers may need to adapt these cards to reflect the content of their schemes of work and expectations in their school. They may also find the statements useful in reporting to parents.
There are also forms which children could use in their self-assessment.
