On Monday 9th July 2018, 80 Year 10- 12 students from schools across England came to Parliament to debate some of the key issues around the teaching of Religious Education (RE).

The students discussed some of the fundamental issues facing the subject, such as whether, in an increasingly secular society, RE is still a vital component of balanced, modern curriculum, and whether pupils learn more by studying other people’s belief than your one.

Numerous MPs, Parliamentary researchers, policy advisers and other interested parties witnessed the debate, which showcased the students’ engagement with the subject through their range and depth of thinking around these complex questions.
