RE and the English Baccalaureate
We call upon the Government to:
1) Include Religious Education in the English Baccalaureate.
2) Acknowledge the publicly expressed views of church leaders, politicians, senior RE professionals, and thousands of individuals that the status and uptake of Religious Education will be harmed by its continued exclusion from the EBacc.
3) Set out a strategy for RE that takes into account the research findings of the National Association of Teachers of RE, which showed that, since its exclusion from the EBacc, RE had ceased to be a GCSE option in many schools, RE departments had been downgraded, and teachers redeployed.
