Avoiding confusion about Creationism or Intelligent Design in Suffolk RE lessons
Suffolk County Council’s Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) will discuss guidance for teachers on the discussion of Creationism and Intelligent Design in RE lessons.
We wonder if some RE teachers may not be as informed about the scientific facts as they should be, and if their religious beliefs may influence their approach to the subject. We advocate training in basic science for RE teachers.
We welcome any evidence about good or bad examples of RE teaching when this subject has arisen. Please email us. Emails will be treated in strict confidence.
