Member organisations are invited to contibute examples of their work in this field.  Please email them to: 

RE Council Statement
The REC Board at its November meeting in 2009 agreed a statement setting out the relationship between community cohesion and religious education.  This stands as a 'think-piece',  presenting the general view of the Council, and is now made publically available to support teachers, school managers and others as they aim to promote community cohesion.

RE and Community Cohesion Project Print E-mail

The RE and Community Cohesion project which began in January of this year and ended on June 29th, involved identifying and coordinating about a dozen Greater London RE teachers who are already developing the role of RE in community cohesion. Each teacher was asked to develop examples of best practice from within their teaching which could then be used as exemplars for national dissemination via a website and for a local exhibition within the City towards the end of the summer term.
