GCSE results - Message from NATRE Chair

Ben Wood, Chair, National Association of Teachers of RE (NATRE), said:


“Congratulations to those pupils receiving their GCSE RS results today, and to their teachers. They have all faced unprecedented challenges this year, but I have no doubt that their efforts will pay off as they see the value of a deeper understanding of religion and worldviews in later life.


"The decision to revert to centre assessed grades is good news for pupils receiving their GCSE grades today. However, this U-turn has caused an enormous amount of distress and disruption to students, in particular those A-level students who may have missed out on their first-choice university. These students deserve every support possible at this challenging time.”
