  • Report says RE should be added to national curriculum

Faith schools could lose the right to teach their own belief and instead have to give more weight to other religions.

A report by the Religious Education Council for England and Wales says RE has become marginalised and should be added to the national curriculum.

But that would make it a legal requirement for all school to teach the same syllabus, regardless of their faiths.

The report, a three year review of religious teaching in schools, could form the basis of a new curriculum when it is released next week.

Chairman John Keast has admitted that it would be difficult for faith schools to teach their own denomination, but said one solution could involve optional modules for students.

Speaking to The Times, he said: ‘These are quite important and difficult issues to overcome. I don’t personally think they are insuperable.

‘I think you could get sufficient agreement on a national body of religious education knowledge and skills and understanding that everyone should know for the modern world.’
