    • Revised primary RE publications

      RE leaders who have purchased publications and guidance from the RE Centre in the past should note that some of the teaching packs have been revised to reflect changes in statutory guidance, curriculum and to incorporate further research from the world of theology and religious studies.

      The following packs have been revised and contain teaching plans, resources and further detailed advice for your teachers:

      • RE in the Foundation Stage (product code RE021b)
        All schools should be following the 2021 EYFS statutory framework. In addition, there is a legal requirement for children in Reception classes in maintained and church controlled schools to access religious education as laid down in the RE agreed syllabus in Hampshire, Southampton, Portsmouth and Isle of Wight schools. We have revised our popular RE in the Foundation Stage teaching pack to take into account the 2021 EYFS statutory framework. If you require advice or support for the teaching of RE in your Reception classes, please contact Justine Ball (email
