Welcome to RE Matters.co.uk
- a support service for schools
I am so pleased you have come to my website.
RE matters is a Newham business that exists to support, inspire and transform learning in schools. We offer a wide range of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunites in Religious Education, SMSC and Collective Worship primarily, as well as bespoke support.
In order to make the support we offer afforable for all schools we have created a partnership agreement scheme. For more information on this please click on the 'partnership agreement forms' tab above.
To book staff from your school into one of our CPD opportunities please contact Georgina Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Teacher development trust in its review ‘Developing Great Teachers', reported that subject-specific CPD is more effective, in terms of its impact on pupil outcomes, than generic pedagogic CPD. So, whether you’re looking to freshen up your RE department with new ideas or equip a new subject leader or teacher with the skills and knowledge required, here at RE Matters we have everything you and your school needs.
In the recent Ofsted RE Literature Review Ofsted commented that, "access to high-quality in-service training for leaders and teachers of RE to develop their professional subject knowledge is essential." Also that RE needs "Subject leadership that can identify high-quality sources of training (for example, through subject associations and organisations) to further their RE knowledge in policy, subject content, subject pedagogy and RE research." https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/research-review-series-religious-education/research-review-series-religious-education
