Awards were made to the SACREs below for a varied and interesting range of projects. Reports to follow.
Secondary School students being trained as Faith Ambassadors, and delivering presentations in their local Primary Schools, in these two richly diverse boroughs: a pilot scheme to be subsequently evaluated and further rolled out.
“Thought for the day – thinking for tomorrow”: supporting schools in developing collective worship, initially with eight varied schools, and seeking to contextualise “fundamental British values” in the teachings and practices of belief systems.
Developing an interactive e-book to support the teaching and learning of RE in KS3 focussing on the experiences of young Christians and Muslims. The e-book will support the new locally agreed syllabus and will be available more widely.
A digital project with secondary pupils, exploring Middlesbrough’s religious heritage and connecting with faith communities today. The project relates to a unit in the Agreed Syllabus, and will also strengthen cross-phase links with primary schools.
“Legacy of life” – a Student SACRE project with students from eight Secondary Schools exploring the theme of religious legacy through the medium of art, working with a professional artist and producing both artwork and postcard images for wider use.
