East Coast Religious Education (E.C.R.E) is a support group for R.E teachers in the Great Yarmouth area, it was initially set up in 2013 by Homefield Church of England Primary School as a way to improve the standard of R.E teaching. The support group proved very popular and now has over twenty-five schools taking part. The HUB for this moved to Peterhouse Primary Academy in Gorleston in 2016, but has now returned to be jointly run by Homefield Church of England Primary School and Corton Church of England Primary School.
E.C.R.E meets three times a year to discuss ideas and share good practice. The group is affiliated with N.A.T.R.E and works closely with the Norwich Diocese which allows it to stay up to date with the latest developments.
Hopefully E.C.R.E will continue to grow over the coming months and years, and will be able to help improve the quality of R.E teaching in Norfolk and Suffolk.
