Implementing the 'Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2017-2022' and planning from 'Religion for Today and Tomorrow'

Following the implementation of the new Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2017-2022, the Hertfordshire SACRE are pleased to share exemplars of long and medium term planning to support teachers in writing plans for their individual settings.

Faith Communities Directory for Hertfordshire 2018-19

This directory has been compiled with the help of the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) in Hertfordshire. Members of the faith groups in Hertfordshire are keen to support schools in their implementation of the new Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education. To this end, those listed are able and willing to visit schools to talk to groups of pupils about their faith. Some may be willing to speak in assemblies and other larger gatherings. We have also listed the main place(s) of worship for the 6 principal faiths in Hertfordshire.

We intend to update this directory regularly and hope to increase the number of entries. Please let us know if you use a speaker who is not on this list whom you are prepared to recommend.

The Directory is available from within Hertfordshire schools only.
