Academies

Our RE Advisers work closely with Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) and academies to find the best solutions for your school, tailoring our services to meet your needs.

We provide RE services to all types of Academies and Multi-Academy Trusts, enabling you to better equip your staff with whole school CPD training or by supporting you to deliver Big RE days to all pupils in a school or specific to Key Stages. Our services include:

Pupil Days

Our pupil days can be tailored to meet the requirements of any type of school, and are suitable for a year group, key stage group, or can be coordinated across multiple schools, including across a MAT.

Case Study:

Primary RE Hub conference

School/Organisation Name:

Plymouth Teaching School Alliance

What did they need?

The Primary RE Hub members wanted a conference that would help them with practical ideas and resources to use in the classroom as well as providing them with subject knowledge support.

Working with RE Today

RE Today Adviser worked with the hub leader and SLE Katie Freeman to put together a day of practical workshops to support teachers where they were at. This day was specifically tailored to the needs of the teachers rather than just being an 'off the peg training day'.

How did we do?

Katie Freeman, Hub Leader and SLE, Plymouth Teaching School Alliance (Diocese and Academy).

'The RE Today training was brilliantly organised and thought through. It met the needs of all of our teachers and it didn't matter whether they were experienced coordinators or new to the role: they all went away having learnt something new. Each delegate was given colour handouts and resources that they could take back to school and use straightaway. The RE Adviser was so full of energy and humour, people loved listening to her and were enthused by her passion for RE.

We've used RE Today for six annual conferences and each time the sessions get better and better. A huge thank you to RE Today Adviser Fiona Moss for her utterly inspirational training day.'
