religious education

Schools have the legal duty to teach Religious Education.

In Birmingham the locally agreed Syllabus teaches through 24 dispositions; qualities and values. These have been agreed by the 9 faiths involved in syllabus.

Likewise the duty to develop pupils spiritually, morally, socially and culturally has legal implications.

We are committed to supporting you to meet these legal duties whilst opening up the wider opportunities that these aspects of school life can give in order to develop your pupils as flourishing human beings.

From September 2022 the new 2022 Birmingham Agreed Syllabus is launched – check out our training offer!

Update on the new Birmingham Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2022

The syllabus has been agreed by nominated volunteers through the body known as an Agreed Syllabus Conference and very recently adopted by the City Council. Resources are being updated and website development taking place. Training for the new syllabus is planned for this summer term, in order for the syllabus to be taught from September 2022.
