Courses – A range of courses and conferences are advertised each term in the RE bulletins.  These can be booked on Schools’ Choice. 

  • Autumn 2018 courses will be available shortly.

Staff meetings - Schools may also contact Helen Matter directly re running courses locally, including staff meetings.

Bulletins – The DARE (Diocesan Adviser’s RE) Bulletin is issued each term.  It is sent directly to schools by email. Contact Helen Matter if you want to be on the mailing list.
