- Religious Education
St George's Academy has no affiliations to any particular religion or denomination. However, we enjoy a link with St Deny's parish church for the annual Carol Service. The local clergy are invited to offer assemblies throughout the year. Speakers from a variety of religious traditions are utilised where appropriate in RE lessons. Students learn about religion, ethics and philosophy as well as learning to reflect upon their own beliefs.
St George's Academy uses the framework of the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education at present.
Collective worship is of a broadly Christian nature. Reference is made to other faiths and a conscious effort is made that the prayers should be general enough not to offend the other faiths present in the Academy.
Parents have a right to withdraw their children from R.E. lessons and Collective Worship and should discuss this in the first instance with the Head of R.E. For any students who are withdrawn the parents should provide them with alternative work to be completed in class or in another suitable room in the school. If students do not have alternative work provided then they should join the RE lesson.
Key Stage 3
After a basic introduction to the six major world religions, the course investigates:
What is religion all about?
What is worship?
A variety of text books are used as well as suitable television programmes.
Key Stage 4
Students may also choose RE as a full GCSE subject either as one of their options or as an additional after school subject.
Key Stage 5
A LEVEL PHILOSOPHY ETHICS & RELIGION
This course is intellectually demanding, exciting and a challenge. You get the chance to assess the ideas of the most influential thinkers and movements of the past 2,500 years. Expect few hard and fast answers, but to have your critical faculties vigorously exercised. Religious Studies is an A level really worth considering and makes an excellent combination with science, humanities and arts subjects. If you would like to sharpen your critical thinking, develop your analysis and evaluative skills and tease your brain, this course is for you.
