Primary Subject Leader Toolkit: Start Here

Recent research to support curriculum design

NATRE recently held a curriculum symposium where primary & secondary teachers of RE came together to discuss curriculum design.

Below you will find resources linked to the symposium that will help you with your curriculum design journey.

Resources developed as part of the NATRE curriculum symposium are detailed on this link.

Pupil voice ideas to benchmark the subject

What would your pupils say about RE? One of our teacher’s asked that question – you can see the quotes on this PDF on the NATRE site. NATRE would love to hear your pupil's responses to the same questions.
