Teaching tolerance: how RE teachers can lead the way in challenging homophobic attitudes in schools – Teach First

Earlier this month we hosted a conference bringing together educators from across the RE teaching community to discuss how we can instil young people with the skills and confidence to work with people from different backgrounds, free from prejudice.

Among the key issues explored on the day were the problem of discriminatory bullying in schools, how to tackle it and how to approach challenging conversations about religious and cultural difference and varied forms of prejudice. Speakers and attendees looked closely at the challenges faced by schools in promoting inclusion and the role that RE specifically can play in this.
