A pilot project to enable pupils from largely mono-cultural schools to meet with pupils from culturally diverse schools in nearby Manchester, after a rise in parental negativity towards visits to places of worship.
Pupils from schools in two pyramids taking part in conferences to develop a model transition project for inclusion in a revised Agreed Syllabus, exploring diversity and religious literacy.
Pupils from Years 6, 7 and 8 taking part in a day event approaching sacred texts as explorers and creating a treasure chest of “gems” to be shared with others and available as a lasting resource.
Newham’s expertise will be drawn upon to develop support for RE and SACRE itself in Waltham Forest, through a series of one-day conferences for Year 5 pupils and setting up a Youth SACRE.
