Church of England - Vision for Education

Please find a link to the newly published 'Vision for Education' which is going to General Synod for a 'Take Note' debate on Saturday 9th July.  This is a much needed and thoughtfully produced publication that helps us all to articulate who we are and why we are here!

DBE Mission Statement

The new DBE Mission Statement can be found here and this will be displayed around The Benn Education Centre.  The statement will now be used within all DBE documentation.

Academy Conversion Advice

The following was sent to all Headteachers, Chairs of Govenors and Clergy of Church of England Schools on 11th May:

Dear Friends

Attached is a short letter from Bishop Christopher and Canon Linda Wainscot (on behalf of the DBE) about Church of England schools converting to Church of England Academy status.

There is no implied imperative to encourage or coerce conversions, but as many of our schools are actively considering their positions, we hope that this statement provides clarity for headteachers, governors and clergy.

Blessings.  LINDA
