Religious Education


Welcome to the RE section of the Lancashire Grid for Learning. Through this website you will find many sources of inspiration to support your classroom teaching of RE. Lancashire's SACRE is committed to supporting all colleagues who are making Religious Education the best it can be for the children and young people of our County.

At the heart of Lancashire's syllabus is the quest to understand what it is to be human. By learning about and from religion we can become more open minded, respectful and achieve greater self-awareness. The skills and attitudes developed though RE can thus make a significant contribution to promoting British Values and developing community cohesion in Lancashire.

Useful Link: The RE Hubs project is dedicated to supporting Religious Education (RE), Religion, Values and Ethics (RVE), and Religion & Worldviews (R&W) teachers and practitioners in the UK. their mission is to connect those who can provide resources with those who need them. They aim to create a neutral platform that brings all stakeholders together, filling the knowledge gap and equipping everyone within the RE/RVE/R&W ecosystem.

Syllabus 2026: - The Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for RE must be reviewed every 5 years. The next review will take place ready for launch in 2026. There will be a move towards incorporating a religion and worldviews approach whilst retaining a coherent curriculum structure that builds knowledge cumulatively. This is a massive job of work to do!
