The conference is designed to inspire and equip teachers and professionals of RE with knowledge, techniques and 27 interactive and thought provoking seminars, as well as opportunities to collaborate and share best practices with peers.

Key-notes on the day were delivered by Mary Myatt who gave a truly inspirational talk on ‘Leadership in RE’ and Mark Evans, HMI speaking about ‘Life in modern Britain, SMSC and RE: only connect’.

The seminars explored an array of primary and secondary topics ranging from subject knowledge, practical teaching and learning ideas and current changes in the RE world.

Comments from delegates:

97% have rated the conference very good to excellent.

‘Good speakers encouraging positive attitude for the subject. Well organised event with excellent choice of seminar choices and discussions; good resources and networking opportunities with professional.’

‘Speakers were excellent. Seminars were excellent. Venue is very easy and pleasant. Lots and lots of really practical suggestions and ideas. Great staff bonding. Lovely general atmosphere. Re-energising. Affirming’

‘Coming to this conference keeps me fresh - as I’m mostly on the giving end of training, it’s great to have input from some experts. I really enjoyed Mary’s keynote, and thought how professionally she handled the tech issues - and having two sessions with Lat was much food for thought, as always.’

Daniel Hugill,  NATRE Chair, has commented:

‘Strictly RE 2018 was a wonderful day. The dedication and passion of teachers of RE was on display throughout the day.
