At school pupils follow a program of study that introduces them to 36 different areas of study from top end KS2, through KS3 and into KS4.
Topic areas include: Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Beliefs and practice; Why sacred texts are important; Worship and community; Celebrations; What do signs and symbols mean in religion; What religions are represented in our neighbourhood; Where do we look for God; Where does the Universe come from. The lessons in year 9 at RSS are strongly focussed on higher level thinking skills in addressing moral, spiritual, social and cultural ideas and issues through developing knowledge and understanding of belief structures.
A variety of teaching and assessment methods are integrated into the learning opportunity to meet the diverse needs and preferred learning styles of the pupils.
