The London Diocesan Board for Schools has announced that Inigo Woolf has been confirmed as the Chief Executive and that Liz Wolverson will continue as the Director, Schools Support Services.
The Board for Schools have produced King James Bible Schemes of Work for KS1-3.
Visit the LDBS website for more information.
They feature assemblies, lessons, songs and video clips for you to use this Easter. It should arrive in the post soon but in the meantime here’s a preview.
There are four assemblies in the pack covering aspects of the Easter Story. Click here (pdf) to have a look at the week four session on the resurrection.
We also have four lessons that you can use as follow up for your assembly or indeed in your Sunday school or children’s club. You can have a look at one by clicking here (pdf).
The resource will include eight specially recorded Easter themed songs to listen to in assembly or use in children’s groups. They have been recorded by Simon Parry and contain a good mixture of songs including both upbeat and more reflective tracks.
The videos feature Gemma Hunt from CBBC and are designed to help the children think about the meaning of the Easter story.
We have also put some bonus material on including some crafts, and extra videos of the ‘Three Trees’ and ‘Dave the Donkey’.
Responsible for collective worship? Running an all age service? On the church prayer rota? Tap into new resources for 2011 Education Sunday, February 20, the ecumenical annual day of prayer and celebration for all those involved in the world of education. They include collective worship materials for both primary and secondary schools as well as prayer and drama ideas with suggestions for all age worship.
The resources on the theme of Firm Foundations are designed to be flexible, for celebrations on or around Education Sunday, or on any other day throughout the year, such as at the start or end of the academic year. They can be used in church, schools, colleges and universities and in other places of learning.
2011 marks the bicentenary of the National Society (of the Church of England), one of the denominational providers of church schools. The church schools it established (and which it continues to support) helped lay the foundations for mass, and, later, free school provision in England.

It’s the much awaited Christmas special; I hope it’s not too late! This evening is our church’s third planning meeting for the Christmas service so I shall be using it, I hope it’s useful to you also. I’ve included a long list of things that are available to you. It’s not exhaustive and I’m sure there’s other good stuff out there. The text is generally taken from the publisher. [Read more...]
I think for all our parishes we can see that schools afford us an excellent opportunity to serve and engage with our local community. For many this means their church school but there are many community schools who would welcome involvement from your church. There’s no shortage of resources out there (I have a whole shelf of the resources centre devoted to assemblies) but I wanted to draw your attention to a new book from Margaret Withers which seeks to offer some new perspectives on it.
