What will I study?

The Eduqas GCSE in Religious Studies aims to:

  • Develops learners’ knowledge and understanding of religions and non-religious beliefs, such as atheism and humanism
  • Develops learners’ knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs, teachings, practices, and sources of wisdom and authority, including through their reading of key religious texts, other texts, and scriptures of the religions they are studying
  • Develops learners’ ability to construct well-argued, well-informed, balanced and structured written arguments, demonstrating their depth and breadth of understanding of the subject
  • Provides opportunities for learners to engage with questions of belief, value, meaning, purpose, truth, and their influence on human life

Long-term plans

Year 10 RE Long Term Plan

Year 11 RE Long Term Plan

High quality and inclusive RE

At ASA, high quality and inclusive RE is provided for all pupils in all year groups. Our intent for all pupils is to deliver an RE curriculum that encourages students to be “religiously literate, culturally aware and philosophically curious”, and to develop pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness.  Our RE curriculum  is structured and implemented  in accordance with the Diocese of York and Leeds RE syllabus and follows the expectations of the Statement of Entitlement for RE in Church Schools

Right of Withdrawal

Parents/carers do have the right to withdraw pupils from RE lessons, or any part of the RE curriculum. If you wish to do this, please make an appointment with the RE subject leader in school. HSLT does not support selective withdrawal from RE.

Our schools have a duty to supervise pupils withdrawn from RE, though not to provide additional teaching or to incur extra cost. Where the pupil has been withdrawn, alternative arrangements will be made for RE of the kind the parents/guardians want the pupil to receive. These arrangements will be made by the parents/guardians. The school is not expected to make these arrangements. This RE provision could be at the school in question, or by another school in the locality. If neither approach is practicable, the pupil may receive external RE teaching as long as the withdrawal does not significantly impact on the child’s attendance.
