a leader must also have faith in the people she is to lead
to see good in them and raise them to higher achievement
through praise not condemnation, encouragement not criticism

Rt Rev'd Martyn Snow, Bishop of Leicester

Understanding Christianity

Training for Schools


In 2016 – 2017 the Understanding Christianity resources were launched across the country with the vast majority of Leicester primary CofE schools accessing the training which is completing in autumn 2017.


There will be an opportunity to those who have completed their training this year to meet to discuss impact and share pedagogical ideas later in the year (dates below). However, we know that there are schools that have colleagues who need to be trained so we are offering the training again. All training is delivered by Fiona Moss from RE Today.
