NEWHAM education authority in east London introduced a new religious education syllabus pack this month to reflect the borough's diverse population.

The syllabus, using examples of best practice, covers Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism at primary level and Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism at key stages 3 and 4.

It was developed by Newham in conjunction with the Standing Advisory Council on RE (SACRE), which has representatives from several religious groups in the community as well as teachers from 11 primary and four secondary schools.

Newham's residents come from all over the world including India, Pakistan, Africa, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the West Indies, Eastern Europe and Portugal.
