New Ofsted Framework and its implications for RE
The new education inspection framework from Ofsted was published yesterday along with the inspection handbook. Much has been written elsewhere about the implications for schools more widely, for example in Schools Week. The document below simply aims to highlight those areas where the handbook might support our campaign for more school accountability in relation to Religious Education (RE). NATRE believes that schools providing their students with outstanding RE should be properly recognised for their work and those denying pupils their entitlement should be held to account, whether they be local authority maintained or academy schools.
