The Department of Education and Formation of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales sets general guidelines for the manner in which religious education is assessed in all Catholic schools in England and Wales. These guidelines are found in Levels of Attainment in Religious Education (2007)
The Levels of Attainment are the official assessment tool for Catholic schools. However, in light of changes to assessment in other subjects, the Bishops’ Department of Education and Formation has approved for use an interim standards document.
NEW ASSESSMENT EXPECTATIONS
The documents which follow give an overview of The Way, the Truth & the Life (WTL) religious education programme and apply the interim standards to the WTL producing End of Unit and End of Year Expectations. The sequence of concepts taught through the WTL religious education programme is also included below.
Religious Education Subject Leaders and teachers are asked to study the documents. The use of these New Expectations is conditional upon diocesan CPD and our ability to resume teaching the religious education curriculum.
