3. Organisations working in schools

The organisations listed here are independently working in schools (both Church of England and Community schools) They provide a range of Christian based input, for example; assemblies/collective worship, RE lessons, lunchtime and after school clubs and many other activities.

The Diocese is seeking to produce a record of where these groups are working so that we can offer input to those schools that are currently not receiving any.

If you are part of a group currently working in a number of schools, we would love to receive information from you about what you do and which area you cover.

If you would like to know more about the organisations listed please contact them directly.
