Introducing the God Question in your Local Secondary School

With the new school session in full swing, now might be an ideal time to approach your local Head-teacher or Head of RE to ensure that they know about the new major curriculum resource Introducing the God Question. It has been designed for use within RME/RE and has a very close connection to the curriculum for Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies. Education Secretary John Swinney, MSP, described the series as “An example of the Curriculum for Excellence at its best”. Before approaching your local school, please write to office@graspingthenettle.org requesting our information sheet Advice for Talking to Secondary Schools About Introducing the God Question.
