Culham St Gabriel’s Trust invites expressions of interest from RE-related organisations or networks to develop a major large-scale project to transform RE in English primary schools.
The recurrent challenges facing primary RE include confusion over the purpose of RE, limited subject knowledge, a lack of teacher confidence, paucity of initial training and CPD opportunities, isolation, marginalization and low status. Nevertheless, some excellent RE practice does exist and can be built on. We are interested in proposals to address the challenges through systematic consideration of the purpose, pedagogy and practice of RE, and transformative CPD leading to better practice. Proposals can include ideas for conferences, courses, online materials, films, or mailings, and will probably consist of some combination of these.
