Religious Education

At The Milford Academy, we aim for our pupils to know about and understand a range of religions and world views enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identity. We aim to enable our children to participate positively in our society which is diverse in relation to religions and world views. Our pupils can articulate clear and coherent accounts of their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the rights of others to have different view, values and ways of life.

Our Religious Education curriculum uses an Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express approach:


  • hook learners in with a memorable experience
  • set the scene and provide the context
  • ask questions to provoke thought and interest
  • use interesting starting points to spark children’s curiosity


  • teach knowledge to provide depth of understanding
  • demonstrate new skills and allow time for consolidation
  • provide creative opportunities for making and doing
  • deliver reading, writing and talk across the curriculum


  • provide imaginative scenarios for creative thinking
  • Enable and assess the application of previously learned skills
  • encourage enterprise and independent thinking
  • work in groups and independently to solve problems


  • encourage reflective talk by asking questions
  • provide opportunities for shared evaluation
  • celebrate success
  • identify next steps for learning
