Schemes of Work for teaching RE to all key stages

We know that planning schemes of work is a laborious and time consuming job for busy teachers, which is why we have created ready-to-use schemes made up of 35 units for Primary schools and 15 units for Secondary schools.

You can view the full list of units here.

Units include lots of teaching and learning ideas, links to useful resources, learning outcomes and assessment guidance and suggestions. Each unit offers on average eight hours of classroom ideas.

We have created these units of work to support its syllabus model A, currently in use in a number of local authorities. However, they offer a resource to support you in teaching RE wherever you are in the country, even if your syllabus is not an RE Today model.

Our Schemes of Work are a resource offering a range of ideas for your classroom. They do not supersede your agreed syllabus.

Check out our handy guide to planning with RE Today units of work to support you in deciding whether these schemes will work for you and your school.

Please note: Our Schemes of Work contain links to external websites where useful resources can be found. From time to time this links will move, redirect or break. As these are external third-party websites we are unable to remedy this. The schemes of work are not lesson plans, and do not contain PPTs alongside the content.

RE Today is not responsible for content on external websites. Links were active and correct at time of publication, but they do not always last. Please do check content etc before passing on to students/using in the classroom. Enough information is provided with links for teachers to search for a suitable alternative should links break
