Course description

These sessions are designed to enable RE managers to explore, share and develop good practice in RE in their schools. The sessions will focus on helping other staff to understand the cycle of enquiry, know the range of concepts in the Living Difference III syllabus, create and amend planning for RE and help understand assessment issues across the school.


This final session in this series will be held at The Synagogue, Elm Grove, in Southsea, in response to requests from delegates.  At the synagogue we will be meeting a former Hampshire SACRE member who will provide a visit and background to the synagogue and then answer some questions from the group about Judaism.

Training objectives

Sessions will cover issues according to the needs of the participants, such as:

  • Supporting other staff in school. What is the Living Difference III RE syllabus all about?

  • Developing schemes of work for RE within a developing, integrated curriculum

  • Assess children’s work using the Age Related Expectations from the Syllabus

  • Create an effective system for monitoring RE and be able to talk about how children are making progress in RE in their school
