My school (currently Independent) is becoming a Free School. We have healthy numbers for GCSE, AS and A Level, no RS at KS4 for students who don't take GCSE. I am trying to work out whether this will need to change when we become a free school. The dfe websit says that Free school must teach maths, english and science and "make provision for" the teaching of RE. . . .so what does that mean exactly? That we have to offer it but students don't have to take it? Thanks if you can clarify this for me.
