I am a School Leader

We want to start by thanking everyone working in schools – leaders, teachers, governors, support staff, volunteers for all you are doing to support and develop the young people in your care. Please watch this film, made by the national team of Diocese Directors of Education, for a message for every one of you.
Faith at home, at school and at church.

For school leaders, Faith at Home is a call to help children and young people discover God’s presence in the place they spend most of their time. It is a call to choose a lifelong exploration of a growing faith, nurtured in the normal everyday elements of life together.

Learning is vital to living life in all its fullness as we grow in wisdom, choose to hope, see the image of God in every person we encounter and focus on building relationships that all may flourish.

For our summer term content, we will be releasing content each week for Primary and Secondary schools following these themes, in partnership with Oak National Academy

We are delighted to publish a new suite of resources for School Leaders focused on Grief, Bereavement and Loss called ‘Never the Same’. These resources are based on the 4 areas of the Church of England Vision for Education, and offer reflection, discussion questions and a wide range of practical activities to support school leaders for this current season and beyond.
