Distinctive and Effective RE Header

The provision of high quality RE through which children and young people flourish and the school expresses its Christian vision is a key aspect of a Church school’s Christian character. Through our core and bespoke training opportunities we seek to work with you to develop excellence in the delivery of RE in all phases of Primary and Secondary education.

Much discussion and research is currently taking place around the question of what it means to be religiously literate and it is within this current context that we offer the following bespoke training opportunities:

Mapping the big picture – curriculum design

A practical session to build the long term curriculum map – identifying how a range of resources can be used to support the delivery of a progressive and coherent RE curriculum which encourages religious and theological literacy.

Embedding ‘Understanding Christianity’

A practical session to assist with the implementation of the teaching and learning approach promoted through this resource.

Beyond levels – developing new approaches to assessment in RE

This session will consider current practice in terms of assessment within RE and will help you to develop an approach which is consistent with your school approach to assessment across the curriculum.

School Self Evaluation: RE focus

Time spent working alongside your RE subject leader to audit provision for RE and identify evidence to evaluate the impact.

Creative teaching and learning strategies for RE

A practical session to explore a range of creative and inspiring teaching and learning strategies to engage pupils in their learning and to deepen knowledge and understanding.

This bespoke work can be undertaken via twilight staff training or INSET day, with individual or clusters of schools/ academies. Time can also be purchased for one to one meeting time with the RE leader or with a wider leadership team including governors.
