Have to teach RE


So you have to teach RE…

Are you a teacher with another specialism? Has RE been placed in your timetable because you had a gap? Are you a TA or HLTA teaching RE to cover the teacher’s PPA time?

In the report, RE: The Truth Unmasked (2013), it was highlighted that over half of the RE lessons in primary schools are taught by TAs or HLTAs, and that in nearly a quarter of secondary schools over 25% of pupils were taught by teachers with other specialisms.

If you are in this position, and have RE on your timetable, we have designed these pages to support you and show you how you can use your own areas of expertise to provide high quality experiences for children and young people.
