Rationale This curriculum map and scheme of work is produced to the specifications of the QCA non statutory Religious Education Syllabus, which is also used at Yiewsley Grange, thus providing a smooth progression across the Keystages. The syllabus also covers most of the LB Hillingdon Locally Agreed Syllabus, which is followed by all maintained schools in the borough. As an independent school HMS is not restricted to the LA syllabus, however, religious education is a statutory subject that all schools must teach, in the UK. “The legal requirements governing religious education (RE) were set out in the Education Reform Act of 1988 and confirmed by the Education Acts of 1996 and 1998”. The purpose of RE at Hillingdon Manor is to encourage students to reflect on their own beliefs, as well as those of others and prepare them for life in a multicultural and multifaith society. As a special school for pupils with ASD we are mindful of the issues surrounding religion and ASD and attempt to minimize the difficulties the condition may impose on theological understanding.

Pupils should be encouraged to express their views and be confident that their views will be respected.
