Friday 7th November saw the launch of the new GCSE and A-Level criteria for Religious Studies. The consultation documents are found here:
Given the number of RE teachers and other interested parties now using blogs, Twitter (#REconsult) and Facebook ("Save RE" group), it is entirely possible this will be the most debated, and hopefully responded to, consultation in the history of RE.
This BlogSync has been set up to create a public forum for responses. It will enable people to read a variety of different responses, and comment appropriately (any disrespectful or personal comments will be removed). It will be shared with the DfE and Ofqual.
I urge every single teacher to read the documents carefully and respond. Highlight what you like about it, point out what is good, suggest improvements and detail things you don't agree with. This is your chance!
Please consider blogging your response so it can be shared here.
If you already have a blog, please email the URL of your post(s) to: TalkingDonkeyRE@gmail.com
If you don't have a blog, simply write your response and when emailing to RSGCSEandAlevel.CONSULTATION@education.gsi.gov.uk copy in TalkingDonkeyRE@gmail.com - if you would like to be identified, please include relevant info.
Thank you for considering getting involved,
