Important News
RE in Schools

It was reported in the TES in February that almost one in three secondary schools is planning to cut the time devoted to teaching RE from September following the introduction of the English Baccalaureate. The radical curriculum overhaul has been caused by concerns that schools will fall in league tables under the new EBac. The NATRE survey - which gathered almost 800 responses from 4,200 state and independent schools - found planned cuts to both short and full-course GCSEs in religious studies from this September.

In some cases schools are reported to be ignoring their statutory duty to offer RE at all.

NATRE continue to receive calls and emails from teachers. For more information contact:


RE organisations are working closely together and are in constant contact with MPs about the current situation in RE:

  • REC (Religious Council for England and Wales)

  • NATRE (The National Association of Teachers of Religious Education)

  • AREIAC (Association of RE Inspectors, Advisers and Consultants)

  • NASACRE (National Association of Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education)

  • AULRE (Association of University Lecturers in Religion and Education)
