How does Discovery RE support schools in evidencing intent, implementation and impact?
This downloadable article will support school leaders and leaders of RE in particular, in preparing for Ofsted and being able to confidently evidence and explain how Discovery RE supports them in fulfilling these expectations.
In the article we cover:
- Intent (Why are we teaching this?)
- Implementation (How is this being taught in the classroom?)
- Impact (What is the effect ? )
In the forward to Discovery RE, we clearly state our intent for high quality RE:
“Our belief is that, using an enquiry-based model well, children’s critical thinking skills can be developed, their motivation to learn increased, and their knowledge and understanding of, and empathy with people and their beliefs, religious or otherwise, will be enhanced. This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief. RE does not try to persuade but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.”
Schools using Discovery RE are free to cite this as they have adopted the scheme of work or use these phrases as a basis to determine their own statement of intent which can then be shared by staff and pupils.
