Grove Books

The Grove Education Series offers and promotes Christian thinking rooted in practice for all involved in schools, colleges and churches.

The booklets are a project of the Association of Anglican Directors of Education and this is the only series of publications commissioned and designed to support the work of Church of England schools. The emphasis is on promoting reflective practice and offering tools for Diocesan Education Teams to use in their work of training and support.

Topics include: Mission, Diversity, Equality, Collective Worship, Governance, Climate Change, Values, Prayer and Bereavement.

Saffron Academy Trust RE Scheme of Work

The Diocese of Chelmsford Education team welcomes the SAT RE scheme, originally designed for schools within their Trust to support the delivery of the Essex Agreed Syllabus.

This is a carefully planned resource, built on strong pedagogy. It has been thoroughly trialled within SAT schools, to ensure consistency and progression – and provides a wealth of materials that can be adapted to meet the context of individual schools.

Our Church Schools should be mindful that in addition to following the guidance of the Essex Agreed Syllabus, there is also a requirement to fulfil the Church of England’s RE Statement of Entitlement. Click on the link below to access the document.
