At Jewell Academy we aim to encourage the use of a fun and exciting curriculum to inspire discussion and increase knowledge, whilst developing the skills of reasoned argument and reflection, through an enquiry based approach. We are committed to providing an understanding of belief within our society, whilst embedding the core values of respect and tolerance toward the opinion of others. At Jewell Academy we nurture a sense of belonging for each child within our multi faith school and aspire to instil a value of self-worth, that will allow them to achieve within the diverse community of 21st Century Britain and beyond.
Jewell Academy refers to the “The Bournemouth and Poole Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2017-2022” and we use Discovery RE as a basis for our learning and to provide an enquiry based approach to children’s learning. Each year group has a Christianity based enquiry and each enquiry is linked to the British Values Agenda. The remaining enquiries reflect the current dynamics of our Academy and allows us to develop an understanding of those beliefs with in school community. This is reviewed on a yearly basis, to meet the needs of our changing community. Each enquiry begins with the child applying the question to their own life experience and leads to knowledge based learning on a specific religion.
