Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community



 “The ability to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religion and belief.”


Subject Intent 

The intent behind the RPE curriculum design is for students to leave Oasis Academy Brislington having built a strong religious literacy, where they know about, and understand a broad range of religions and worldviews and “how these impact on human living” (Georgiou, 2018). The RPE curriculum allows the students to be articulate citizens in the society in which they find themselves.  It must also enable students to acquire knowledge that takes them beyond their own experience (Young and Muller, 2015). Finally RPE is in the unique position to offer opportunities for dialogue (Stathi, Cameron, Hartley and Bradford, 2014) that can positively impact on community cohesion (Jackson, 2013; DfE, 2010). To this end students will be giving the opportunity to do the following in each lesson:

·         Realise and question their own beliefs and ideas

·         Understand and questions the ideas and beliefs of others

·         Appreciate the diversity of the world around them

·         Construct arguments and defend them respectfully

·         Become an active global citizen
