Curriculum Overview


What our Years 7, 8 & 9 Data Drop Grade Descriptors mean.

Curriculum Intent

The aim of the RPE curriculum is to expand pupils’ knowledge of the world’s diversity and open their minds to the different values, ideas and cultures around them. Our curriculum aims to challenge students' moral points of view and to develop respect and appreciation of how to live in a diverse and inclusive society. We do this by valuing different perspectives through the study of different cultures and religions. Our department aims to promote an awareness of the usefulness of RPE to everyday living, to encourage enthusiasm and interest in the study of other people’s beliefs and cultures.
