  3. You beat me to it, Clare! I was going to recommend that everyone read your blog.
    You might also want to look at Clare's RS videos which can be found on the Celebrating RE Facebook page and also on Clare's YouTube channel.

    Well said Clare! It's the point that core RE and a GCSE qualification in Religious Studies are two very different concepts. GCSE Religious Studies being as academically rigerous as other GCSE humanity subjects. Core RE is designed with all the best intentions, but without support from those above school leadership, is open to being sidetracked by other subjects and have the highest amounts of non-specialist teachers delivering these lessons. When you look at the sheer content (never mind the social, moral, spiritual, cultural aspects), it is understandable why those PE, Art, ICT and DT teachers at my school cannot cope with teaching RE.
     
  5. I know - they're just so completely different, but no one seems to care. It's as though the idea of core RE is being used to shut us up from any further protest! Well, that's not going to happen at any time soon!
