Inter Faith Week 2013 takes place from 17 - 23 November in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

This page features some downloadable resources for schools and SACREs to aid in your marking of the Week.

Some of these resources were specially created for Inter Faith Week in 2009 by the National Association of Teachers of Religious Education (NATRE) and the National Association for Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (NASACRE), with support from the then Department for Children, Schools and Families.

Further support may also be available locally through your RE Adviser, Lead/AST RE teachers or local SACRE. The resources below can be used to organise activities during Inter Faith Week itself, or throughout the year to support your schools' work to promote good inter faith relations within your community.

Resources

Inter Faith Week Challenge 2013 Interfaith Explorers is a project of the Maimonides Foundation, which is endorsed by UNESCO, and provides free, structured learning materials about inter faith engagement for primary schools. As part of its marking of Inter Faith Week 2013, Interfaith Explorers has launched a national Challenge to encourage teachers to use as many of their classroom 'taster' activities during the Week as possible. These activities are available via the Inter Faith Week Challange link above, and can be used as stand-alone resources or as part of the wider Interfaith Explorers programme. There are also free, downloadable certificates for schools and pupils who take part.
