This chapter details the specific requirements of religious education and collective worship in non-faith schools and the nature of the agreed syllabus for religious education in Birmingham. The main difference between faith and non-faith schools concerns the recruitment of teachers and other staff — for example, whether a particular faith-background can be required — and pupil selection — for example, whether this can be from a particular faith background. In schools with a religious foundation, religious education and collective worship will reflect the Trust deeds of the school, whereas those schools without a religious foundation will either follow the locally agreed syllabus or, in the case of academies and free schools, a religious education syllabus of their choosing in line with their contract with the Education Funding Agency (EFA).
