The RE Department is comprised of 5 core teachers. The staff are enthusiastic and work very well as a team. All staff are encouraged to be reflective in their teaching and share good practice.
During Key Stage 3 we teach students of all abilities. In Years 11 and 12 all students are prepared for CCEA GCSE RE. A small number of students access OCN RE. We also offer A Level RE. RE is a core aspect of all students’ learning as Lagan College is an integrated and inclusive school founded on a Christian ethos and values.
During recent years the Department has been developing resources and ideas that have assisted in the introduction of active learning and the use of ICT, in particular the iPad. All students in Years 9 to 14 use iPads in the classroom.
Student progress is monitored carefully and tracking and target setting are important aspects of improving student learning.
