Someone sent me a PM asking if they could quote me in an article they're writing about RE. I sent an outline of my approach and will add bits from old posts relating to my experience of teaching RE. I'm sharing these as a resource in case colleagues may find some useful ideas in defending the subject in your schools. As always, my only aim is to give support and encouragement to all my lovely colleagues and stay working in the field that I love so much and care about so passionately. I'm always happy to correspond with colleagues or to come in school to support you. And I offer great slide-show based reflective Assemblies and role-play workshops.
