Religious Education and Collective Worship Course for school Governors and Boards

Religious Education and Collective Worship Course for school Governors and Boards

Do you understand the importance of RE (through the Agreed Syllabus) and Collective Worship? Do you know the Governors’ responsibilities in relation to the statutory syllabus of RE prepared under the Education Act 1996 (Governance Handbook 6.5.6).

This one-hour course, created by experts in RE, covers policies, procedures, principles and practice. Gain the skills and confidence you need to help your governing body ensure a consistent and whole-school approach to RE.

According to the Ofsted annual Report 2022-23 p41 “RE in schools is generally of poor quality. Although it is a statutory subject, schools often consider RE as an afterthought. As a subject on the curriculum, it is under-valued.” This course will help you to support the delivery of high quality RE in your school.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Have reflected on what school is for (Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and personal development)
  • Know why we teach RE (The locally agreed syllabus)
  • Understand what collective worship is and why we provide it. (Developing a school culture and values in a diverse world)
  • Have a greater awareness of what the role of governors is and how can we help? (Making this happen)
