    Deep and meaningful? The religious education subject report

    by Hannah Richardson -

    The religious education subject report was published on 17 April 2024 and contains some important messages and recommendations for all schools. The full report can be found here: 


    The headlines outlined in the report show that nationally there are some real concerns with RE provision, however, we know that locally Living Difference IV is a comprehensive syllabus which actively addresses the curriculum recommendations outlined in the report. 

    In response to this report and to continue to provide support to schools the following webinars exploring the report and Ofsted inspection framework for RE are available:

    • Monday 17 June 2024 – 9:30-12:00
    • Tuesday 1 October 2024 – 9:00-11:30
