Following the launch of the Commission on RE last month, the REC is very pleased to announce the appointment of the Commission’s Project Manager, Jon Reynolds, who will be leading the operational side of the Commission’s work:

“I am thrilled to have been appointed as Project Manager for the Commission on RE. I am looking forward to working with the rest of the team to ensure its success.  The work of the Commission will be very important in reviewing the legal, education and policy frameworks for Religious Education. I hope that this will secure the best possible provision of RE for young people in schools across the country, as the subject continues to grow in popularity.”

It will be essential for the Commission to be able to hear from all those who wish to contribute to the debate.  It is expected that, following their first meeting, the commissioners will have made a decision on how they wish to hear from people; in the meantime, the REC will be happy to collect submissions by email at
