Living Difference IV
Living Difference IV is the Agreed Syllabus for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton. This is the legal document to be followed for the teaching of religious education in Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and Isle of Wight Local Authority schools.
Living Difference IV offers a set of principles for teachers to make their curriculum to ensure religious education is open to the plurality of ways in which people live in our local, national and international communities.
It describes an approach for teaching, seeking to explain the educational value not only of children engaging with new material intellectually, but also of them becoming better able to discern what is desirable for their own lives, and with others, for the world.
We currently follow Living Difference III and will move over to Living Difference IV in September 2022.
