Ranelagh Awarded RE Gold Quality Mark
Just before the summer break Ranelagh was awarded with the Religious Education Gold quality mark by the Religious Education Council of England and Wales. The council is tasked with recognising and celebrating outstanding learning in Religious Education across the country and has decided that Ranealgh is worthy of the gold status, the highest possible award.
Religious Education plays a vital role in our schools curriculum and is integral to our school ethos. It helps us develop life skills and teaches us important values like love, honesty, forgiveness, kindness, justice, respect for others and our environment and perhaps most importantly tolerance and equality, values which are essential in today’s modern world.
Ranelagh is extremely proud that we are one of the few schools in Newham to have achieved the REQM Gold. The assessor, who visited our school and spent time talking to our RE Leader Ms Afshan as well as children and other staff commented that “Ranelagh puts RE at the very heart of its planning across the curriculum, basing it around religious, cultural and ethical themes. The pupils enjoy the subject and make a positive contribution towards whole school planning. They are highly motivated by the positive ethos of the school and everyone is clear about not only the importance of a good RE education but also how they can further improve in RE.”
