NATRE Primary Survey 2018

Posted by: Marketing Team, 30 April 2018

We have launched our bi-annual NATRE Primary survey to obtain information about the current state of RE in all types of schools for Primary age children.

The data from this survey is crucial to help us plan how to support our primary teachers. It also gives vital evidence in our campaigning with the DfE - demonstrating what primary teachers and trainees need in order to ensure that the quality and provision of RE is good and fair.

Please complete this survey and encourage your colleagues and networks to do the same. As a thank you for completing the survey, you get £5 to spend with RE Today.

‘If the Department is informed that an individual SACRE or ASC is experiencing difficulties in fulfilling its statutory duties, the Department will contact the local authority to remind them of their duty to support their activities satisfactorily.’
