Good practice

25th October 1996 at 01:00
My own extensive experience of Catholic education in Britain is a far cry from that portrayed by Ian Feely.

Much could be written about the fine tradition of Catholic education in this country and the role of dedicated and deeply reflective teachers, religious education advisers and inspectors. I will confine myself to three points.

Members of the National Board of Religious Inspectors and Advisers are mandated by their bishops and seek to work in active partnership with the schools in their dioceses.

The guidelines offered by NBRIA to its members respect the dual requirements of church (Canon 806) and civil law (Education Schools) Act 1992.

Section 13 inspectors, like Section 9 inspectors, seek to affirm good practice and identify any areas which require further development.
