The Agreed Syllabus sets out what pupils should be taught in religious education (RE) from ages 3-19.
All maintained schools have a statutory duty to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which includes RE. Maintained schools without a religious character are required to teach RE to all registered pupils in accordance with the locally Agreed Syllabus. Academies and free schools are also required through the terms of their funding agreement to make provision for the teaching of RE. They can choose to use the locally agreed syllabus but are not required to do so.
It is a legal requirement for the Local Authority to review the Agreed Syllabus every 5 years. The review is overseen by an Agreed Syllabus Conference (ASC), which has a similar membership to the SACRE.
The Syllabus for Warwickshire and Coventry schools was published in 2017. All documents are available to download below.
