Welcome to Harrop Fold

At Harrop Fold, we are committed to making the difference for all our young people.  Our aim is to produce well-rounded young people who are prepared for our ever-changing world. We do this by focusing on the Personal, Social and Academic aspects of education, which will drive our young people to reach their potential and achieve true excellence.

Religious Education

What will my child’s learning be like in Religious Education?

We aim to promote a knowledge-rich curriculum at both KS3 and KS4. We will focus on understanding the six main world religions at KS3, so students are able to recall and evaluate key arguments about the different faiths and cultures around the world. Students will also discuss and debate some difficult moral and ethical questions, in the hope this will help them to appreciate the difficult decisions that people have to make every day around the world. KS4 provides students with the opportunity to look more closely at how the Christian and Islamic faiths deal with many issues that affect people every day, evaluating arguments for and against these approaches.

What are we aiming to achieve in the Religious Education Department?

The RE curriculum throughout key stage 3 and 4 is designed to promote the spiritual, moral and emotional growth of young people. Throughout their studies, students will develop a tolerance of diversity across a variety of cultures, faiths and beliefs. Students will experience religion in the real world through visits to religious sites and visits from religious leaders and followers of different faiths.
