We are actively engaged with all our Church schools during the Covid-19 pandemic.

On this page we have documents and resources from our team. We will also add links to other organisations we are working with to help and support schools at this time.

To all colleague staff and teams working in and with our schools

Reprised from our home page…

Thank you for everything you and your staff continue to do selflessly in our schools, on behalf of our children and young people. It epitomises what the Diocese stands for and the values it was founded on.

Please know that the work of all our schools and academies at this time is deeply valued by the diocese, National Church and most of all by our communities.

A Bereavement Guide for School Leaders

I appreciate that our resolve is now to be tested further in coming weeks. This pain will eventually pass because of the effectiveness of the collective actions of individual leaders, driven by personal commitment, faith and courage. Through decisive action we are making progress; know that hindsight will conclude that you were core to this passing, just through what has already been achieved by all schools across England.

With our thoughts and prayers.

Message from Andrew Read

Prayers are a powerful way of engaging in conversation with God, even if things do not always get better straight away.

We are delighted that so many children and teachers in our schools have composed some powerful and meaningful prayers during our lockdown time. Sharing these with all our schools enables the word to stretch further and for children to reach out to others. Let’s keep writing prayers together !

Rev’d Sue Martin

Caring and thoughtful reflection…
Thinking of others…
Resolving to banish fear…
