Funding continues for Locally Agreed Syllabuses for RE

Posted by: Marketing Team, 15 November 2016

NATRE were pleased to read in Hansard that the Government have promised to continue to provide funding for Local Authorities to produce Locally Agreed Syllabus for RE.

Craig Whittaker Conservative MP for Calder Valley asked, ‘What support is the Secretary State for Education providing for Standing advisory councils on religious education for developing syllabuses.’

Nick Gibb, minister for schools, replied, @Local Authorities currently receive funding through the Education Services Grant to support Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (RE). Local Authorities will continue to receive funding to develop an agreed syllabus for RE once the Education Services Grant has been removed.’

The response goes onto to say, ‘SACREs and Agreed Syllabus Conferences may use resources that meet the needs of the local area they serve, such as the Religious Education Council’s non-statutory framework for RE.

What can you do as a teacher of RE?
