Religious Education

Each local authority has recently revised their RE syllabus for community and Voluntary Controlled church schools. They offer some revised schemes of work, guidance and assessment advice. Voluntary Aided schools and academies are also advised to use these syllabi. Schools should now follow these links:

North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset schools

Somerset schools

The RE Statement of Entitlement for all Church schools and academies is available to download below.

Understanding Christianity is the exciting major new resource from the Church of England to support the teaching of Christianity in religious education. The diocese offers training to support the use of this resource in all schools, click here to book.

Learn, Teach, Lead RE hubs are up and running, offering school-to-school support in local areas around the diocese.

Each term, we offer a day’s course on an aspect of RE and courses especially for RE coordinators. See our CPD programme for continuing professional development opportunities.
