Failure to meet statutory requirements on RE will be taken into consideration in the Ofsted ‘quality of education’ judgement

UK Government – Education Committee – Ofsted

Dame Christine Ryan: Chair of Ofsted, gave evidence to the parliamentary Education Committee in September 2021 and was asked about the inspection of RE by the Chair; Robert Halfon MP. The committee showed real concern about schools and academies breaking the law by not teaching RE to pupils in all year groups. NATRE has noted an increase in OFSTED reporting on the lack of RE in schools.

We were pleased that Robert Halfon MP, cited data collected by NATRE and quoted in the Ofsted Research Review 2021.
