Collective Worship & RE

The information in this section aims to support schools to deliver collective worship in practical and engaging ways which is:

  • Inclusive
  • Invitational
  • Inspirational

Support for religious education in schools in the Rochester Diocese aims to help our schools to deliver high quality teaching and learning through the appropriate syllabus:

  • For Voluntary Aided schools, the Diocesan syllabus is recommended
  • For Voluntary Controlled schools, there is a requirement that their Locally Agreed Syllabus is followed (with support from Rochester Diocese)
  • For Academies, it is recommended that Church schools within a Trust follow the same syllabus (please contact the Diocese if guidance is needed)

Information about some aspects of the wider curriculum which relate to Church school distinctiveness are also included here.  For further information, please contact
