We are able to provide input from a Christian perspective to complement and supplement the RE, PSHE and Humanities syllabus. We can also help in any other areas of the curriculum where an understanding of the Christian position or contribution may be helpful. Topics like Abortion, Euthanasia, the Environment, Honesty, Justice, Prejudice can sometimes benefit from someone outside the school visiting.
Classroom visits provide an opportunity for pupils to question and challenge beliefs and claims, as well as to express their own opinions. A variety of media and methods may be used to make lessons interesting and thought provoking such as: Videos, Discussion, Role-play, Small Group Exercises, Questionnaires, Audio-visuals, Written Material.
Pupils are encouraged to look at Christianity and matters of belief, value and lifestyle with an open mind and, in accordance with the requirements of the 1944 Education Act and the 1988 Education Reform Act, there is no attempt to proselytise to the Christian faith.
