Religious and Moral Education--A Portrait of Current Practice in Scottish Secondary Schools
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
"Religious and moral education--a portrait of current practice" is one in a series of portraits by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIE), depicting current practice in key aspects of the Scottish curriculum. The portrait series is a recent initiative by HMIE, flowing from the "Improving Scottish Education" (ISE) report. It is intended to promote improvements in Scottish education through illustrating effective practice, raising current issues and stimulating reflection and debate. This portrait explores religious and moral education in the context of the secondary school curriculum as a key sector within the delivery of the 3 to 18 curriculum. It will be updated periodically to reflect case studies of effective practice. An important purpose of the portrait series is to relate existing pedagogy and curricular provision to the aspirations of "Curriculum for Excellence" ("CfE"). By stimulating debate about teaching for effective learning, the portraits will challenge us all to review the extent to which current practice is successfully promoting the four capacities in all young learners. This portrait is based on evidence obtained from HMIE visits to secondary schools during the period 2002 to 2007. These visits included both general inspections and other visits to examine effective practice. Inspectors evaluated the quality of learning, teaching and meeting needs and achievement.
