Phase 2 of the RE Subject Review is well under way. Task Group 1, led by Graham Falgate, has been producing draft materials for RE in the light of the National Curriculum Review consultation documents. The RE ones will be brought for consultation to the REC AGM in May; public electronic consultation will take place in June when the full complement of draft materials has been produced. There has still been no financial support from the government for the RE Review, despite the fact that a grant of £100K was made available to PSHE colleagues for their guidance materials. However, meetings have been arranged with members of the NC Review team and this has been helpful to the parallel RE process.

Task Group 2, led by headteacher Hazel Henson, is looking at the wider context in which RE sits, including examinations and ways of harnessing the collective energies of those involved in RE to most productive effect.
