Christian Values and Education in a Rapidly Changing Culture

An excellent day conference for all Christians involved or interested in Education

This sponsored event is organised by a wide range of Christian organisations and representatives from education settings around the country. The aim of the conference is to equip Christians for influencing a variety of educational settings, by discussing the most relevant issues and hearing from both practitioners and thinkers.

We are able to provide this event at a subsidised rate of £20, due to the generosity of those associated with CCFE. Our key note speakers include Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, President of the Oxford Centre for Training Research and Advocacy, and Former Bishop of Rochester, and Peter Mitchell, who worked as Education Policy Officer for the Evangelical Alliance. We will also hear from Ron Skelton, Head at Broadway Academy, a school in a very multicultural area of Birmingham. In addition to key note speakers, there will be seminars with leading and highly experienced practitioners. We also hope to have public figures from the local area contributing.

Note: The plan is to stream this event online as well as have people present at the venue. At the venue, various measures will be in place to ensure that we are compliant with Government guidelines on public meetings. More details about how to access the live stream with be released in due course.

Understanding Christianity Day 1

The resource called Understanding Christianity: Text Impact Connections, offers an approach to teaching and learning about Christianity with units of work and supporting resources from EYFS to Year 9. It was launched at Lambeth Palace on 26th May 2016.

 

Understanding Christianity sets the bar for the quality of teaching and learning about Christianity in our schools and academies. It reinforces the messages we have been giving over the last few years about ‘digging deeper’ and engaging children and young people with the big ideas and concepts of the Christian faith. The teaching approach is one of theological enquiry, and the units of work support both continuity and progression.

Following recommendations from the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring[1] and the Teacher Development Trust[2] that effective training should be intense and sustained, the expectation is that teachers in primary schools will have 12-15 hours of CPD on Understanding Christianity. There will be gaps between encounters when schools will try out the approach, returning to explore further.

The Resources

The original resources issued to schools who trained between 2016 and 2019 are no longer available due to production costs. Those who attend this training must bring the school’s copy of the Understanding Christianity resource with them. (For anybody attending from a school that has not previously had somebody trained a new more slimmed down resource pack will be available and, once trained, the full resources will be available online).

How the training will be offered in our Diocese

7 lots of training for Understanding Christianity have already taken place in the Diocese and c100 of our 103 schools have attended. However, due to popular demand we are offering a further opportunity to access the training as detailed below.

Participants must attend all 3 days of the training and non-attendance will result in a charge being made, as there are only a limited number of places available. Day 1 will take place at Hayfield Cross CofE Primary School, Kettering

Hayfield Cross CofE Primary School, Hayfield Cresent, Kettering NN15 5FJ

Headteachers' Conference

Excellence in Curriculum Planning and Design.   The conference will explore:

· The reasons for the curriculum having a high profile

· The importance of framing the curriculum within Christian values

· Aligning the curriculum with the Church of England Vision for Education

· To what extent is our thinking about the curriculum ‘Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good’?

· The findings from some schools about how curriculum revision has reignited a love of subjects

· Why every child should have the chance to engage with demanding and interesting work

· How we can make sure that our vision and Christian ethos match our practice in the classroom

Mary Myatt is an education adviser, writer and speaker.  She trained as an RE teacher and has also taught English, History, Maths and Latin.  A former local authority adviser and inspector, she works in schools talking to pupils, teachers and leaders about learning, leadership and the curriculum.  Mary has done extensive work across dioceses and in schools with a religious character.  With her colleague Jane Brooke, she set up the RE Quality Mark to recognize high quality provision and outcomes in religious education.  She maintains that there are no quick fixes and that great outcomes for pupils are not achieved through tick boxes. Her latest books are ‘Curriculum: Gallimaufry to Coherence’, ‘Hopeful Schools: Building humane communities’ and ‘High Challenge, Low Threat’.

 

The conference will be held via zoom.

A 10 day Pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine

Following in the Footsteps of Jesus led by The Rt Revd Donald Allister

I hope you can join me for my next Holy Land pilgrimage. I confidently expect that it will be:

  • exhilarating
  • exhausting
  • faith-building


For those who have been with me before, this pilgrimage will be different:

  • a full day longer with more activities
  • two bases instead of three
  • starting with Jerusalem and the south, finishing with Galilee and the north


For those who have not been on such a pilgrimage, please note:

  • this is a Christian pilgrimage, and we will worship together, singing, praying, reading the Bible, and celebrating Holy Communion every day
  • you need to be physically fit, able to negotiate moderate hill walking, uneven surfaces, and many steps
  • we will be well fed with lovely Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food, but we cannot always guarantee to provide special diets.

We are limited to 50 pilgrims, so get your booking in quickly
