Aquarius to push for RE in schools

The Religious Education Council for England and Wales has handed an account to Aquarius PR.

The not-for-profit body is a multi-faith forum where national organisations with an interest in supporting and promoting religious education (RE) in schools and colleges can share matters of common concern.

Aquarius is producing a leaflet for the body on RE in schools that the body will use as part of a communications drive to improve understanding of the subject.

The literature will be sent out to journalists, MPs, head teachers and non-RE teachers to brief them on the state of the subject in schools.

Last week a paper from the National Union of Teachers caused a stir when it suggested that religious leaders could be invited into state schools to give pupils instruction, thus reducing the need for faith schools.

Creative director Suzanne Evans reports to executive officer Sarah Smalley.
