- Both GCSE course will be externally assessed by 100% examination at the end of year 11.
How to support your child in Religious Education:
We would encourage you to consider and respond to questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life, questions of morality and identity in our multifaith and multicultural society. RE lessons at Baines School will provide plenty of opportunity for this type of dialogue and reflection, and will allow your child to explore their own quest for meaning. The most important thing we would invite you to consider is to keep an open mind on the subject of religion and its impact on life.
For homework and research tasks:
Baines School ILC has a wealth of resources.
