What are primary school inspection reports saying about Religious Education?
NATRE is continuing to monitor comments on Religious Education in reports of schools inspected under the new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework this term. The following document includes excepts from 14 primary school inspection reports that provide a window on how the vision for the process we discussed here is working out in practice. The table quotes text from sections entitled, “What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?” and “What does the school need to do to improve?”. Quite a number of these reports were from primary schools where Deep Dives were conducted on RE and this is indicated in the final column. Further information about “Deep Dives” can be found on the Ofsted website here.
As more reports are published, NATRE will publish further information to support teachers of RE.
