    Living Difference IV: revising plans, teaching packs and your school websites

    by RE Moodle administrator -

    With the launch of Living Difference IV on 30 November 2021, the HIAS RE team is in the process of updating all plans, websites and teaching packs accordingly, including the use of end of year expectations (EYEs) to assess children's progression. 

    This is a significant piece of work and will be achieved over the coming months. During this transition phase, whilst familiarising yourself with the new syllabus, please continue to use your existing plans and teaching packs.

    Link to Living Difference IV is here. We ask schools to please check that you have links to the syllabus on your school websites from January 2022 and to check that you are up to date by referring to Living Difference IV in your RE policy and curriculum overviews. Schools will need to take time to plan and implement the syllabus and we ask that you do this during this academic year, ready for September 2022 onwards.

    Please email any queries to re.centre@hants.gov.uk.
