'Religious Education (RE) makes a significant contribution to pupils’ academic and personal development. It also plays a key role in promoting social cohesion and the virtues of respect and empathy, which are important in our diverse society. However, the potential of RE was not being realised fully in the majority of the schools surveyed for this report.'

 

Ofsted Report (Religious education: realising the potential)

Please note that if Sunita can be based in one classroom for the day it will allow her to spend more time with the pupils as it will reduce the time it takes to move between classrooms, as she has a large amount of resources that need to be moved and organized.
