The Hockerill / NATRE prize for Innovation in RE Teaching
The Hockerill Educational Foundation and NATRE have joined forces to provide the
educational world of Primary and Secondary education with a new prize which recognises
the work and dedication of those who teach Religious Education.
Building on the success of the joint conferences run for new RE Teachers in their
PGCE year, Hockerill and NATRE have developed this prize to recognise innovation
in this very important subject area. We are also aware that the school ethos must
provide the teacher with the right environment for innovation to occur.
The prize, which recognises both of these elements, is in two parts:
- The first part is a monetary prize for the school to enable it to purchase new RE
- The second part is an educational bursary for the teacher to part fund attendance
at a specialist educational course for RE.
The prize also recognises that the needs and requirements of the Primary and Secondary
sectors are different and is therefore given separately in each sector.
The First Prize is £700 for the School and a bursary of £400 to the teacher.
