Jan is the regional lead for the East of England.


The East of England region

The East of England Region of a large geographic area (Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, CambridgeshireBedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire). 

Welcome to the eastern AREIAC group. With exciting research, school projects, collaborations, curriculum developments, Farmington scholarships and more there is so much to share and be excited by. Do come and join us.


Thank you to those of you that joined us for the session on May 13th. Dawn Cox provided us with an excellent, thought provoking session focusing on her recent publication with Louise Hutton, ‘Making every RE Lesson Count’. We all commented that the themes within the recent Ofsted review were aligned with the main themes of her book, and hence it is a timely read for teachers in school too. ‘Making Every RE Lesson Count: Six Principles to Support Religious Education Teaching’. The recording of the session with Dawn Cox will be available shortly to members of the regional group.

We also discussed the recent Ofsted Report on RE (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/research-review-series-religious-education) and the THEO video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFRxKF-Jdos)

A date for your diary is the next Eastern AREIAC meeting: Wednesday 15th September 2021 4.30-6pm. Focus: Ofsted review: what is happening in response: collaborative planning: moving forward. Any additional agenda items please let me (Jan) know.

Warmest wishes
