At Wigton Moor we follow the RE syllabus designed by the local authority's standing advisory council on religious education (SACRE). The topics studied in each year group are based on materials and resources the school subscribes to from the West Yorkshire RE hub. The material provided by the hub is aligned with the Leeds RE syllabus. The 2015 syllabus was reviewed this year and the revised syllabus will be introduced in September 2019. The new topics to go with the new syllabus are listed below
In Reception the curriculum is taken from the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
