Bedford Borough SACRE Agreed Syllabus

Every maintained school in England must provide a basic curriculum (RE, sex education and the National Curriculum). Religious Education is a statutory subject of the basic curriculum whilst not being part of the National Curriculum. RE is not subject to national statutory orders such as national attainment targets, programmes of study and assessment arrangements, instead, it is locally determined.


It is the Local Authority which has the responsibility for devising the Syllabus used for RE in the maintained schools in its locality.
The local authority is advised by a Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) which convenes an Agreed Syllabus Conference to review the Syllabus every five years.


The Syllabus was reviewed during 2010/2011 and a revised Syllabus will be launched in November 2011 for implementation from September 2012.


Each school was sent a copy of the Revised Agreed Syllabus and an electronic copy will be placed onto the secure section of our website.
