Embracing Change: Rural and Small Schools (2018)
This report sets out the context and challenges for small and rural schools. It discusses two main questions: what do we need to have in order to deliver an excellent 21st Century education and equip children to flourish? And how does the current distribution of Church of England schools serve God's mission?
Valuing All God’s Children (2017)
Guidance for Church of England schools to prevent homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
In response to positive feedback received from schools, we have updated this edition of Valuing All God's Children.
- The appendix listing resources and organisations offering support to schools seeking additional help in the provision of anti-bullying training were being interpreted by some as a list of ‘recommended' organisations for issues beyond the scope of Valuing All God’s Children. We have removed these pages from the publication because we are not able to make recommendations for such a wide range of possible needs. Instead, schools are encouraged to seek Diocesan advice and always ensure any external providers have a proven track record, come recommended by someone they trust and are sensitive to the ethos of Church schools.
- The list of protected characteristics on page 13, the comments on page 14 and the legal framework section of page 29 (Appendix C) have been updated to ensure greater clarity about gender reassignment being a protected characteristic.
- The recommendation about curriculum on pages 6 and 27 has been broadened to ensure a wide understanding of identity.
Church of England Vision for Education: Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good (2016)
This is a fresh articulation of the Church of England's vision for education; a vision that is deeply Christian, with the promise by Jesus of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart. This is worked out theologically and educationally through four basic elements: wisdom, hope, community, and dignity.
Unlocking Gifts Report (2016)
Printed copies not available
The Unlocking Gifts Project, funded by the Jerusalem Trust, offered schools the opportunity to generate ideas on how to focus resources on relatively simple programmes to make a difference to the most disadvantaged groups. This report shows how nine different projects were able to help pu pils to achieve, be the best they can be, flourish and have 'life in all its fullness.'
Fruit of the Spirit - A Church of England Discussion Paper on Character Education (2015)
This is a discussion paper in partnership with the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues. The paper includes helpful case studies highlighting different approaches to character education in Church of England schools, as well as questions to support reflection on individual schools' approach to character education.
