Teaching & Learning at Hobart


The RE Curriculum

Religious Education is given in accordance with the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus, a copy of which may be viewed at the school on request.  Students are encouraged in a variety of ways to explore and respond to life around them and to help them form their own views.  Pupils are taught the knowledge, skills and understanding through studying Christianity, Buddhism, Sikhism and Humanism and revisiting Hinduism, Islam and Judaism.  Pupils cover topics such as beliefs and concept, rights and responsibilities and sciences and religion.  Parents wishing to withdraw their child from Religious Education are invited to discuss the matter with the Headteacher.  In addition to covering the content of the required syllabuses, the RE department considers the following to be of particular importance – how to think critically, how to empathise (understand other people’s position and views sympathetically) and to encourage them to become independent learners.

Extra-Curricular Opportunities
