Knowledge in RE

Welcome to the start of a new academic year and with it our second special issue of ProfessionalREflection, this time focusing on the topical issue of knowledge in RE. As before, this issue is special in having been edited by three people rather than two – joining the team this time as Guest Editor is RE Today Consultant Julia Diamond- Conway. Our theme has been chosen to reflect a good deal of thinking recently about knowledge, its nature and its purpose in RE, prompted by the Commission on RE Report in 2018 and the Ofsted Research Review 2021, as well as reviews of agreed syllabuses and the focus on knowledge in Ofsted inspections (2019). In particular, the discussion on different types of knowledge in the RE Research Review has sparked some very interesting responses.
