KS3/4 RE - Running the Department

Description

Fulfilling the statutory requirement of running a secondary RE department and finding the time and resources to really focus on teaching and learning is a challenge for many schools.

Mulberry School for Girls is an inner-city state school nestled in the heart of London's east end. It is one of the first to make RE GCSEs compulsory for all their students.

The senior management team have never regretted the decision to make compliance work for the whole school and the department has gone from strength to strength.

Deborah Weston and Anne Fayter jointly lead the school's department of five specialist teachers. In this programme:

  • They share what they think has made their department work
  • They offer advice to non-specialist RE teachers
  • We follow the Year 9 students on a day trip to a Hindu temple and a mosque
  • We see the particular value of taking learning out of the classroom in RE through the eyes of the girls
