Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus of
Religious Education 2012-2017

This Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education (RE) replaces the one published in 2006. This syllabus will, to a considerable extent, build on what is already established and will continue to take RE forward as a key component of the whole curriculum.

This syllabus requires that pupils learn about and through religion and that teachers encourage pupils to reflect on their own beliefs and values whilst acknowledging that others may hold beliefs different to their own.

The Education Act 1996 requires that all locally agreed syllabuses of RE are reviewed every five years. This review in Hertfordshire has been greatly informed by teachers and by representatives from faith communities within the county. Through the consultation process and the Agreed Syllabus Conference (ASC), many people have given generously of their time and expertise to review and develop the Hertfordshire Syllabus for 2012 - 2017.

Together they have considered the last syllabus, the views of Hertfordshire teachers, national advice by the national non-statutory Framework for Religious Education, as well as recent national and local developments of the whole curriculum.

We would like to thank everyone who has been involved from the initial consultation through the detailed work of revising the syllabus to the complex task of refining the final version. It is due to this professionalism, understanding and effort that we can commend this new Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education to you as a good basis for further developing the work of teachers and others concerned with RE in Hertfordshire schools.
