Religious education and the new national curriculum - clarification

Religious education was not part of the national curriculum review and there is no change to either the requirement to provide religious education or the Bradford Agreed Syllabus for RE.

Local authority maintained schools in Bradford should continue to use the Bradford Agreed Syllabus for Education 2011 - 2016 which can be found here.

Network meetings are held for primary RE leaders each term.   These will take place on:

16, 17 or 18 September 2014

13, 14 or 15 January 2015

9, 10 and 11 June 2015

Meetings provide national and local updates on RE, exemplar materials and opportunities to share good practice. Places are free of charge and can be booked through

Advice and guidance on RE is available from

Please check the Interfaith Education Centre web page and BSO for information about religious education.
