Primary Religious Education

NORES offer many services to schools to help them improve and evaluate their Religious Education curriculum and collective worship.  

We will:

  • visit and support staff teaching religious education
  • organise meetings for Primary RE Coordinators 
  • provide INSET meetings as required
  • organise annual conferences
  • represent the Trustee at all major appointments for religious education
  • communicate national developments and initiatives
  • contribute to Religious Education nationally as members of the National Board of Religious Inspectors and Advisers
  • with the Liturgy Commission offer courses for liturgy with young people
