Leading RE in the Primary School (online)

This half-day course is aimed at RE coordinators and teachers who are leading in RE at Primary Schools. 

We will focus on planning and delivery of exciting learning in RE. The starting point will be a focus on enquiry-based learning promoted by the new RE syllabus. We will look the expectations on RE arising from the new Ofsted framework and explore how to monitor and evaluate RE across the school. 

We aim for all attending to leave with some new ideas about how to lead learning in Religious Education and to inspire young people with the richness of experiences both within and beyond the classroom.

Training Objectives

  • Develop an understanding of ‘deep dives’, examining the way RE is being inspected by Ofsted under the new framework
  • Utilise the new RE syllabus to create planning frameworks for RE at KS1 and 2
