NEW RE in Ebacc survey. Please email,tweet, post, carrier pigeon to any RE teachers. ASAP. <h1>Urgent! New survey from NATRE about RE & EBacc</h1>The government’s final decision about whether or not RE is included in the EBacc will be made in June! Meetings between NATRE and others with Nick Gibb, Schools Secretary, in recent days have made it clear that he requires yet more evidence to convince him not only that RE should be in the EBacc, but that there is a crisis in RE in many secondary schools as a result of the EBacc. So ... NATRE would like to ask all secondary RE teachers to complete an online survey to gather the data we need - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EBaccandREsurvey Would you please: a) Circulate the link above to every secondary teacher of RE you know – and complete it yourself if appropriate b) Use all the local authority, diocesan or other networks you can to make sure the link reaches everybody c) Think creatively about how to spread the link – message boards (e.g. TES), Twitter, Facebook, school/la/diocesan websites, press contacts. NATRE had an absolutely magnificent response to their first survey back in January – 900 responses, and it made a significant impact. This second survey needs to be completed as a matter of urgency - it’s our last chance to try and persuade the government to include RE in the EBacc. Contact NATRE if you have any questions – and keep an eye on our websites for updates – www.natre.org.uk – and www.retoday.org.uk.
