“The world is a lot smaller than it used to be, and far more of us are surrounded by people of different cultures and backgrounds and faiths. It's got to be a good idea for tomorrow's adults to know more about those faiths, because it makes a huge difference to how people relate to one another.” John Keast

“RE is meaningful in any society where beliefs and values are important: it's about getting pupils to engage with the big questions of life. Over the last few decades, RE has been built up into an important and rigorous subject – and what is shocking is how quickly it has been marginalised, because of all the changes going on in education. We've got to ensure that it continues to be taught in all schools, and also that it is taught by specialist teachers”. Rosemary Rivett
