One of the great strengths of the United Kingdom is our diversity. From the Huguenots to the present day – people of all religions have decided to make their homes here. It is vital that we teach the history and traditions of these faiths and beliefs throughout people’s formative years, so that young people can critically and analytically come to their own conclusions about their spirituality, with access to as much information as possible. I am sure that the Religious Education Council will continue to build upon and further develop RE in our schools for many years to come and – as a member of one of Britain’s smallest recognised faith groups, Zoroastrianism – I am very grateful to the Religious Education Council for all that they are doing to inform, educate and develop a mature and balanced attitude towards religious education in our schools.
