Religious Education

St Mary’s University has an experienced team of academics working in Primary RE both in the undergraduate and PGCE pathways. Current projects include collaborative studies and text production.

Maria James and Mary Benton are working with Canterbury Christchurch investigating what is special about universities with a church foundation and why increasing numbers of students choose to study there.

Maria James is also working with Middlesex University to find out what RE provision is about across certain universities.  She is currently working on two texts in RE. 

Claire Parkin is working with Linda Woodhead and Charles Clark to talk to teachers about practitioner research in RE.
