How this essay is organised

The headings in this essay are derived from the six ‘Big Ideas’ (Wintersgill ed. 2017, Wintersgill et al, 2019) and the Commission on RE’s National Entitlement (CoRE 2018). This introductory section for example links to NE2 – key concepts such as religion and the complexity of worldviews, NE4  – the ways in which worldviews develop in interaction with each other and have some shared beliefs and practices, and that people may draw upon more than one tradition, and Big Idea 1 – continuity, change and diversity and what we mean by religion(s)/worldview(s).
