From trialling the scheme in school, we already felt enthused and excited about teaching RE using the new materials including the website. They have really lifted the teaching of RE in school and raised its profile as a core subject. The materials provide excellent support, especially for non-Catholic teachers. The pupils are inspired and motivated by the resources - RE has become an enjoyable, yet challenging subject. I am looking forward to continuing to use the scheme and enhancing it with the excellent range of materials you have shown us. You have all worked so hard and are a real inspiration. Thank you.
