The Bishops’ require 10% of the taught time for religious education. This usually means, 2 hours 15 minutes at Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 2 hours 30 minutes at Key Stage 2. This needs to be clearly indicated on the class timetable. This time does not include collective worship (other than the Rejoice section), hymn practice, assemblies etc. This time allocation needs to be distributed appropriately across the timetable to ensure quality time is given for effective teaching and learning throughout the week. The school leadership and management should take responsibility for this.
Within each lesson there needs to be a balance between input, discussion and activity.
