London and the South - East
Claire is the regional lead for London and the South-East.
The London and South-East region
The London and South-East Region of AREIAC covers all the London Boroughs as well as the counties of Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, West and East-Sussex.
At our last meeting we spent some time sharing on-line learning resources for RE that we had found would be useful to schools. We then spent some time discussing schools and collective worship during the last year, some finding that this had an increased importance to some community schools. We noted the work Lesley P and Dilwyn are doing on behalf of NASACRE and Areiac on collective worship was going to be really useful and significant. We discussed recent publications in the RE world and thought about implications towards our work with schools and SACREs.
There was also discussion about when and how we will continue to meet as a regional group. We decided we would have 2 of our meetings as virtual twilights, and have a 1 day physcially meeting in london - provideing CPD for us as advisors, consutlants and inspectors.
Our next meeting is Thursday 10th June 10-1pm virtually on zoom
