The Agreed Syllabus for RE in Leeds Schools

On 18th July Concord members heard about the implementation of the Agreed Syllabus for RE in Leeds Schools. Alastair Ross, an independent advior to Leeds SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on RE) presented a detailed, coherent and thought provoking talk about the formulation and implementation of the the syallabus across Primary and Secondary Schools in Leeds.

Alastair provided many examples of Schemes of Work, Lesson Plans and other documentary evidence that has been developed to assist with the implementation of the syllabus across all Key Stages. A lively question and answer session followed his main presentation.

Further information about the syllabus is available from Alastair Ross himself, via www.penninelearning.com, or from Leeds City Council at www.leeds.go.uk/docs/Leeds%20RE%20syllabus.pdf
