This East Sussex Agreed Syllabus, ‘A Journey of Discovery’, is an update of the previous Agreed Syllabus 2011. It affirms the important contribution that RE makes to the education of all pupils growing up in contemporary British society. It seeks to contribute to a curriculum in schools which the 1988 Education Reform Act expects to be balanced, broadly based and:
- Promoting the spiritual, moral, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
- Preparing pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life
The Agreed Syllabus for RE has four purposes, which mirror those of the National Curriculum.
