Children & School

Many parishes are discovering the value of working in partnership with their local schools.

We have something positive and relevant to offer schools as they plan and deliver their curriculum in RE, Personal, Health, Moral and Social Education. Schools are often very welcoming of clergy who assist with delivering collective worship.

We have collected some resources you may find useful as you consider working with your local schools and you may find these useful in your ministry. Not every resource is useful for every ministry so take a good look at all the resources available here, online and in local bookshops and see which best fit you, your schools and your ministry.
