RE Syllabus and Training Programme

The new Agreed RE Syllabus for Derby is now available. 

The Agreed Syllabus has been approved by both the Derby City Agreed Syllabus Conference and by Derby City Council. It provides the legal framework for a syllabus for Religious Education for Derby City schools.

The syllabus explains the value and purposes of RE for all pupils, and specifies for teachers what shall be taught in each age group. It provides a coherent framework for setting high standards of learning in RE, and enabling pupils to reach their potential in the subject. It parallels the National Curriculum for community schools, but is also recommended for use in Church schools, academies and free schools.
