The Cornwall Agreed Syllabus Conference has decided to defer the launch of the new 2020 Agreed Syllabus for RE in Cornwall until later in the academic year. This will enable the already excellent and exciting new Syllabus to be further enhanced by materials to support a revised Curriculum Kernewek, both in the published Syllabus, and on-line. Schools are reminded that the 2014 syllabus remains the legal basis for RE planning, teaching, learning and recording progress.
The new launch dates are 25th and 26th March 2020. Application forms and venue dates will be sent out as a matter of urgency when we have booked the venues. Please note that the costs will be £110 for the first applicant from each school and a further £90 for any other wishing to attend.
Although disappointing for those schools who have already booked, and with apologies for any inconvenience caused, the Agreed Syllabus Conference is unanimous in its view that a delay now will lead to a better outcome for RE in Cornwall. Please watch this space!
Free RE professional and curriculum support is ongoing through the Learn Teach Lead RE hub meetings in local areas – please see https://www.ltlre.org/events/ for details – and also through the SW area RE conference at St Mellion on 10th and 11th October.
SACRE is delighted to welcome Linda Rudge as an additional consultant working alongside Clifflynn Banfield (me) to help with the extra work involved in preparing the new Agreed Syllabus. Linda is a very experienced and respected national expert on RE, who is well known to teachers through LTLRE, and now currently manages the RE Quality Mark nationally for the Religious Education Council.
