More than half of England's schools are failing pupils on religious education, says the education watchdog Ofsted.

The report accuses schools and the government of failing to focus effectively on the subject.

It adds that six in 10 schools are not "realising the subject's full potential" in an increasingly globalised and multicultural century.
