Facilitator Profile

This course will be run over 2 online sessions focusing on how to construct high quality RE curriculums that build knowledge and create progression.

Session 1

  • What do we mean by worldviews?  How might they impact on how we conceive and teach RE in schools? In this session, Adam will discuss how we might take a worldviews approach to RE that is grounded in the reality of life in the UK today. Lots of practical ideas to take away!

Did you miss the first session or just need a reminder of what was covered? The session recording can be found once you login to your Gateway Alliance Member’s Area to access whenever it suits you.


Session 2 – Building Progression in Ways of Knowing from EYFS to KS2 and Assessment in RE

  • Building Progression in Ways of Knowing from EYFS to KS2. We will look at ways of ‘knowing’ in RE and how we can introduce ideas of lenses to pupils in Key Stage One and EYFS, building this into Key Stage Two.  How can we get pupils to think deeply about religions in a way that is linked to lived reality and reflects the diversity of the world around them?
  • Assessment in RE – How can we think about what to assess?  How can we ensure the pupils are remembering key knowledge whilst also developing their skills as theologians, philosophers and social scientists?  This session will provide you with some practical ideas to take away to help you with assessing RE in your school.

This course is being run over 2 sessions. Delegates are expected to ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS.

The sessions are taking place as follows:

SESSION 1: Friday, 6 October 2023 (09:30-12:00)
