'Many primary RE coordinators are not RE specialists. Often people are thrust into this role with little background knowledge, little support and with only minimal INSET. This book is for them. Clearly set out, well written and informative without being over-long, it covers the role of the coordinator, what the coordinator needs to know about the aims and legal requirements, how to write a policy, how to develop RE in the school (including monitoring and assessment), and an up-to-date guide to useful resources.' - RE News
