ESS Letter in Scotsman – Welsh Government

We were heartened to hear that The Welsh Government is considering a change to Religious Education in Wales.

Hoping to be called ‘Religion, Philosophy and Ethics’ this new approach will continue to cover different world religious beliefs but invite young people equally to consider other ethical and philosophic ideas.

In addition to tackling extremism and community division in schools, the subject will discuss religion as one of many ways of approaching life’s bigger questions and not as a one-stop solution.
