The Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education

Our Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education is the result of a collaborative partnership between the Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (SACREs) of the four local authorities that comprise the Humberside region, following the similar joint RE syllabuses of 1999, 2005 and 2010. 

Ever since their formation in 1996, the four local authorities (East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull City, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire) have worked together in support of Religious Education in local schools and are proud to continue this fruitful partnership in the life of the Agreed Syllabus for 2016-2021.

In September 2018, the final report of the Commission on Religious Education, Religion and Worldviews: the way forward. A national plan for RE was published. It sets out a national plan for RE comprising 11 recommendations and calls upon the Government to consider and adopt it.

The status of our Agreed Syllabus is unchanged; it remains our statutory RE curriculum until at least March 2021.
