The 1988 Education Reform Act states that all new agreed syllabuses for religious education must reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain. Schools containing considerable numbers of children from faith communities other than Christianity, are providing, or wish to provide, combinations of multifaith and separate faith acts of collective worship. One practical response would be for each school to produce its own scheme of work for religious education based on the agreed syllabus. Religious education can transcend the informative by being a sensitive induction into religious studies not with the aim of evangelising, but with the aim of creating the capacity to understand and think about religion. The wide variety of celebrations held by different faith communities gives one helpful way into exploring religion phenomenologically.
