In March we were very pleased to receive this news:

Dear Ms Harris,
We are delighted to tell you that your application to become Young Ambassadors for the duration of the academic year 2012/2013 has been accepted.  Congratulations!  Your application showed great potential.  You are now part of a network of other students in other schools across the country, and we are glad to be working with you…
 …The REC works hard to make RE better for all pupils, and to encourage politicians and policy makers to understand the value of RE, but to do this we need your help.  RE starts in schools, with people like you: pupils who care about the world they live in…. 
Thank you for giving your time and energy to the application you submitted, and we look forward very much to hearing from you again soon. 
Yours,
John Keast,
Chair
Religious Education Council


We are very lucky at Broughton that RE is a popular and thriving subject. However, this is not the case in some schools, largely due to the impact of recent initiatives in education, such as the Ebacc and outdated ideas about what RE is all about. We hope that our work over the next year will  help to promote RE and share a better understanding of what our subject has to offer.


The Broughton YA Team
We would really appreciate some comments and feedback from parents to help us with this work. If you have anything to say about RE in general and in particular, about the work that goes on in RE at Broughton please email your comments to Ms Harris: harrisj@bbec.lancs.co.uk




Thankyou for your support,
Will, Chloe, Habeeba, Sonya and Saskia RE Young Ambassadors)

A blog is only as interesting as the comments made by the readers. Please join in the discussions, but remember to abide by the school ICT policy at all times. Thank you.
