RE and the EBacc

Posted by: Rosemary, 12 January 2011

RE Today and NATRE are interested to hear from teachers about what is happening in their schools regarding curriculum planning for September 2011. Emails and phone calls to our office, together with today’s publication of the EBacc results, confirm our concerns that RE may be struggling to retain its place in the curriculum in some schools.

Let us know what is happening in your school - whether RE is retaining its curriculum place next year, or is under pressure. We won’t identify you or your school to others unless you give us permission to do so.

Email us today with details of RE in your school. Also - why not visit us on Facebook and Twitter?
