Agenda item

Key Stage 4 Results 2018


The RE Subject Advisor presented her report on the Key Stage 4 results and elaborated on the difference between attainment and progress.


The Chairman then asked Members to divide into two groups to discuss the Key Stage 4 Results for 2018 which had been circulated with the agenda.


From the discussion groups, the following points were raised:


·       Ongoing concerns about non-specialist teachers continuing to deliver RE and even GCSE RS.

·       A small number of schools were still opting to deliver full GCSE RS course to a whole cohort of students, in some cases with limited curriculum time.

·       Concerns about limited curriculum time given for the delivery of GCSE RS or lack of time for core RE.

·       It is difficult to get the full picture as questionnaires from the Local Authority to Academies and Trusts do not have to be completed.

·       Can SACRE do anything about Ofsted checking on compliance to ensure good provision?


The Chairman asked if questionnaire had gone out to schools. The RE Subject Advisor advised that she was building intelligence by meeting with RE teachers.
