    I'm moving from a Catholic school where we follow 'Here I am' (oh the joy) scheme of work for RE. What scheme do Church of England schools follow?

    I think it varies. When I worked at a C of E school a couple of years ago we used the basic county scheme of work but I know the schools do have the option to opt out of this.

    I believe it is what is termed a 'locally agreed syllabus'. In some CofE schools this is followed, but in others RE is one of those things that always gets missed.

    We NEVER miss RE, I have 2 lessons a week!
  5. I've just started at a CofE school. I would never have even considered a Church school if it hadn't been SO lovely - I thought I'd have to teach that CofE is good and everything else is bad (in the Catholics style!) but I've actually been pleasantly suprised so far. We use the LEA plan. This unit, certainly, is a comparative study between Christianity and another religion in the way they celebrate and use light as a symbol. It doesn't say one is better or posit Hinduism as The Other; it just explores both. And the finishing point of every lesson isn't anything about God or Hell or the CofE, but rather about helping the chn to reflect on their lives, actions and personal beliefs. I think it's really rather sweet! [​IMG] x

    If you've never considered working in a faith school before where did your rather skewed vision of catholic schools come from? We teach the children about the faith but have never been expected to give an unfavourable view of other faiths, and I have never talked about hell in RE.
