We want high-quality religious education for all pupils in all schools
High-quality RE plays a vital role in equipping young people with the knowledge and understanding they need to interact with others who may have different perspectives, both in the workplace and in everyday life.
RE helps pupils make sense of the religious and non-religious worldviews around them and begin to understand the complex world in which they live.
It is an essential area of study that prepares young people for life in a world where there is a lot of controversy and where many people often lack the knowledge to make their own informed decisions.
Religious education, however, has too often been neglected in many of our schools.
What’s more, in some places it has not kept pace with the changes in our world. We believe that like our society, RE has to evolve.
We are proposing a new, refreshed vision for the subject so that pupils explore the important role that religious and non-religious worldviews play in all human life. This vision is focused on a clear statement of entitlement to a high-quality education in Religion and Worldviews.
We are calling on those responsible to rethink RE in line with the new vision.
