About the Webinar

This webinar, in collaboration with the subject association for religious education, RE Today, will equip headteachers, school leaders and religious education (RE) teaching staff with the knowledge and skills to manage discussions on diverse faiths and belief systems in a way which fosters mutual respect and broadens understanding.

Religious education makes a significant contribution to pupils’ academic and personal development. The Ofsted School Inspection Handbook states that inspectors will evaluate the effectiveness of a school’s provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education, including having respect for other beliefs and valuing the things we share in common across different religious communities.

In this webinar, Lat Blaylock, national RE advisor and primary school specialist, explains how schools can deliver religious education and have difficult conversations with their pupils which are conducive to the meaningful exploration of different faiths, teachings and traditions in order to prepare them for the modern world.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to create an environment where conversations about different faiths can take place in an open and balanced way and promote mutual understanding.

  • Recognising how to discuss difficult topics and encouraging honest and transparent opinions that accept diversity and don’t disallow or minimise difference.

  • Understanding the importance of welcoming self-expression and creating a rich, creative and engaging learning environment to help learners develop personal and social skills.

  • Building self-confidence and developing skills to become well-informed, relaxed and adept at encouraging participation and ‘respectful disagreement’ between pupils.

  • Recognising the importance of using knowledge to beat prejudice and challenge ignorance, promoting tolerance and respect for one another.
