As with all maintained schools in England, Church of England schools:

  • Teach Religious Education in line with the locally agreed syllabus (Voluntary Aided schools are able to set their own syllabus but the vast majority of our schools follow the locally agreed one)
  • Hold acts of collective worship every day

In addition, Church of England Schools provide:

  • Education underpinned by Christian values
  • A culture guided by the Christian way of life
  • Care of each individual as a unique part of God’s creation
  • Close links with the community
  • Partnership with the local Anglican church and congregation

Guidance for Church schools on being both distinctively Christian and inclusive of all faiths and none.
