Event Description
Religious Education (RE) in Hertfordshire has a long and strong tradition of quality and creativity, but the world of RE is changing rapidly and having to adjust to new educational structures and priorities. Hertfordshire Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) (SACRE) is keen to support schools with this.

This conference ‘Strengthening RE’ will build on what schools are already doing and inspire different perspectives and closer collaboration to ensure pupils across the county have challenging and exciting RE lessons.

The programme for the day will include keynotes and structured discussions from Katie Freeman, Chair of the National Association of RE Teachers (NATRE) and Bill Moore, Adviser to Hertfordshire SACRE, former Chair of the Association of RE Inspectors, Advisers and Consultants (AREIAC) and of the National Association of SACREs.

Ahead of the live event there will be the opportunity to listen to pre-recorded webinars from both national and local experts in RE including Ed Pawson, Saima Saleh, Sarah Payne and Ryan Parker. These webinars will focus on themes such as worldviews, anti-racist RE and approaches to teaching and learning both in Primary and Secondary settings.

Ideally delegates should listen to two, and at the least one, of the pre-recorded webinars ahead of the live conference on Saturday the 3rd July. Details on how to access the webinars will be released 2 weeks prior to the live conference.
