Religious Education Teaching Resources from RE Online

Wednesday 11th May 2011

Michael Gove has decided to leave compulsory religious studies out of the proposed Baccalaureate syllabus and several teaching unions are backing up religious leaders and politicians to have it included. Learning about different religions is considered to be a vitally important part of pupil’s education in schools, as well as to promote community integration and greater understanding in young people about the basis of other peoples faith. A new campaign to put religious education at the heart of the secondary school curriculum is being backed by 110,000 people, including a number of politicians and church leaders. Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Rt Revd John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford, said: "We have serious concerns that the English baccalaureate does not include RE in the core of selected academic subjects.

The Telegraph also reports today that David Cameron is under pressure to debate about the inclusion of RE in the new English Baccalaureate as one of the core subjects as GCSE level.  

Good quality free teaching resources about RE can be indispensible in the classroom, and RE Online offers both resources for teachers and for pupils too. Check out the RE Online website for bright and eye-catching teaching resources dedicated to religious studies covering Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
