Time Allocation

In order to deliver the aims and expected standards of the syllabus effectively, the expectation is that there is a minimum allocation of 5 per cent of curriculum time for RE. This is set out in the table below, and based on the most recent national guidance.

 

4-5s: 36 hours of RE, e.g. 50 minutes a week or some short sessions implemented through continuous provision
5-7s: 36 hours of tuition per year (e.g. an hour a week, or less than an hour a week plus a series of RE days)
7-11s: 45 hours of tuition per year (e.g. an hour a week, or a series of RE days or weeks amounting to 45+ hours of RE)
