    Our curriculum for RE adheres to the statutory curriculum for maintained schools in Calderdale and is authorised by the Standing Advisory Council (SACRE).

    You can see an overview by cohorts on our curriculum page.

    The three aims of the curriculum are as follows:

     Teaching and learning will focus on the core religions: Christianity; Islam; Sikhism; Judaism; Buddhism and Hinduism whilst recognising diversity and the many other systems of belief.
