Curriculum Impact


In every RE lesson, teachers mark books regularly to progress with their short-term planning. We offer the best possible support for all of our pupils, including our EAL children. Skills in RE develop each year. 


Our staff use baseline assessments to regularly assess what the children know as the topic progresses and inform their future planning.


Assessment information is integral to our monitoring cycle.  Our monitoring cycle is developed at the beginning of each academic year.  Monitoring in RE includes: lesson observations, book scrutinies and pupil voice.
