Collective Worship

Collective worship is the 'heartbeat' of every Church school. It is an important means by which the Christian vision of the school is expressed and explored. All schools are required by law to have a daily act of collective worship. In a Church school this should be Christian and reflect the Anglican nature of the school. Many schools work with their local church and vicar to plan and deliver collective worship.

In a Church school collective worship should be invitational, inclusive and inspiring.

Materials for collective worship

Seeing Anew is an approach to collective worship which takes a careful look at how the practices of collective worship can be formational of all those taking part. Here are some resources to help explore this approach:

General Resources

Teach me Your Ways is a child friendly way of exploring the core concepts of the Church of England’s Vision for Education: Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good.

Listening to the Voice of the Learner is full of manageable suggestions for helping pupils to evaluate collective worship although it is quite dated now.

For further ideas go to Ideas for Teaching about the Trinity

Songs For Life is a resource for learning hymns in collective worship. It includes a series of focused activities to help children explore in depth some of the key concepts of the Christian faith and the variety of ways that these are expressed through music and words.

The legal framework for collective worship

Guidelines for withdrawal from collective worship

Thank you to all you headteachers and staff in our schools who have worked so hard and done amazing things in these times.

Not only have you kept the education going for the pupils in your care, you have also made sure that there have been Signs of Faith, Hope and Love.

Please read this letter of thanks from Bishop Libby to all our schools.

Do sign up for the weekly communication from the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership. This is full of inspiration and resources so do make use of it.

This useful Coping Calendar has some sound advice and ways of managing stressful times such as these.

Sadly, it will be probable that we will have to deal with bereavement in our communities over the next weeks and months. 

Here is a useful document about having difficult conversations with children produced by the Diocese of Carlisle. 

Winstons’s Wish has useful resources for helping schools help children and young people who are coping with the death of a loved one, as does the Board of Education at the Diocese of Birmingham. 

However, it is important that we frame our approach to bereavement with the Christian narrative.

Resources have been written to do this:

Grief loss - Diocese of Manchester Board of Education

St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Board of Education

Diocese of Bristol Board of Education

The Church of England has written a service for marking a funeral that you can’t attend as does the Diocese of Southwark.

Please also bear in mind that we have a box of hard copy resources available from our office that are available for any school to borrow once schools are open again.

Bereavement Resources

During the Covid Lockdown, this website page is being used to list resources about death, bereavement and loss – specifically as these relate to children.

There are many different types of resources, reflecting the reality that no two children (or adults, of course) react to a bereavement in the same way. Offering, but not insisting on, opportunities to talk through memories and feelings will certainly be part of our response to a child who has experienced the death of someone close to them.

Experience shows, though, that the time scale around this for children might be significantly different to the way adults tend to grieve.

As children reach new ages and stages of development, they might need to grieve afresh for the person they have lost.

During this difficult time, children might not be able to say a final goodbye, so these prayers have been produced: Prayers for children who cannot be at a funeral

The Derby Diocesan Board of Education has a Bereavement Box with a selection of useful resources for schools. You can download the list of books here – if you cannot source author or publisher please contact me, the box is usually available for loan, although this is not currently the case.

Organisations such as Winston’s Wish offer online support and resources and also have a helpline on 08088 020 021

Child Bereavement UK also has online resources and a National Helpline 0800 02 888 40 (Freephone. Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm) It also offers this email for bereavement support:

The Church of England “Faith at Home” group has published, “Never the Same”, a School Leadership resource for grief, bereavement and loss. It can be downloaded here

The following resources from various dioceses might also be useful:

Funerals - A Simple Reflection

Diocese of Birmingham 

Diocese of Manchester Board of Education

St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Board of Education

Diocese of Bristol Board of Education

Useful Books

Children’s books about death – this selection includes some from a specifically Christian perspective – CHILDREN’S BEREAVEMENT   (Please note, these are not all known to me, this is a selection of what is available – for recommended books, please see the list which is in the Bereavement Box)

If you have used other resources and would like to share these, please send me the details:

Religious Education (RE)

The Agreed Syllabus for Derbyshire and Derby City 2020-2025 schools is to be used in all Voluntary Controlled schools. In Voluntary Aided schools it is the responsibility of the governing body to decide on the syllabus for RE. However, the Board of Education recommends that VA schools also follow the Agreed Syllabus. REtoday have kindly shared the additional resource Building Progression through your RE Agreed Syllabus to support good planning.

It is also the expectation that Church schools will adhere to the Church of England Statement of Entitlement for Religious Education.


RE Coordinator’s Training

There will be online RE leaders network meetings this Autumn term. Please follow the links below to book your place.

4th November 2-3.30 pm

5th November 2-3.30 pm


RE Coordinator’s Folder

This link will take you to documents (downloaded as a .zip file) which you might find helpful in compiling a subject leader’s folder. These are only exemplars or pro-formas and are offered as a way of support.


Useful Information for RE Coordinators

The Open Centre in Derby can help you arrange a visit to one or more places of worship. They also run a variety of workshops which will support teaching and learning in RE.

REonline is a comprehensive website aimed at teachers and leaders of RE. As well as providing excellent material for professional development, it also acts as a portal to other websites which it deems to be of sufficient good quality.

NATRE (the National Association of Teachers of Religious Education) is the subject teacher association for RE professionals. It works to support those who teach and lead RE. It runs projects, provides teaching material and lobbies on behalf of the subject. In Autumn 2018 NATRE produced a very useful piece of Guidance: dealing with withdrawal from RE.

REQM (RE Quality Mark) is an award which recognises outstanding learning in RE. Several of our schools have achieved awards and have really felt the benefit of having to concentrate their efforts in doing so. Most recently these include Stretton Handley VC Primary and Dinting VA Primary who received a Gold award and St Oswald’s VC Infant who were awarded a silver.

RE and Continuing Professional Development Handbook is a very useful website designed for subject for subject leaders and teachers of RE. It covers nine areas: a short history of RE; religious traditions and beliefs; the RE curriculum; approaches to teaching, learning and assessment in RE; leading and managing, resourcing and planning RE; national policy organisations for RE; researching RE; RE and religious studies and theology; schools of a religious character.

Farmington Scholarships for teachers of RE and headteachers. Each year, there are scholarships available for anyone interested in out of school study in an area of their choice but connected to RE and spiritual development.

Governors of church schools

All governors of Church schools have a responsibility to ensure that the Christian foundation of the school is upheld.

In addition Foundation governors are an important part of a church’s ministry to the school and local community. What is a Foundation Governor? gives an overview of the role.

Church School Governance is a useful booklet for all governors as it sets the task of being a governor in the context of Christian service. 

Click here to find out the difference between voluntary aided and voluntary controlled church schools.

We are delighted that there will be another Governors' Conference on the 17th Spetember but this time it wil be a virtual conference offering a mixture of pre-recorded and live workshops. It is real value for money with  workshops being offered from 9am until 8pm and a year's worth of training in one day. 

There will also be free induction training for governors new to Chruch schools on the 12th October, 7-8.30pm.

All church schools are inspected under the SIAMS schedule in order to ascertain, ‘How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish.’ However, due to the Covid 19 pandemic all SIAMS inspections have been suspended until at least January 2021.

Under the 2018 SIAMS schedule one overall grade is awarded – excellent, good or ineffective. In addition a stand alone grade is awarded in all schools for collective worship and in voluntary aided (VA) schools and former VA schools for Religious Education. This grade is based on teaching and learning alone.

If a school was judged to be a good or outstanding (or excellent under the 2018 schedule) church school in its most recent SIAMS inspection, then it will be inspected within five years from the end of the school year of that Section 48 inspection.

If it was judged to be satisfactory or inadequate (or ineffective under the 2018 schedule) then the next SIAMS inspection will be scheduled three years from the end of the school year in which the school was last subject to a Section 48 inspection.

The inspection has to be carried out by a trained and National Society registered inspector. The Diocesan Board of Education manages the process for schools and holds a list of inspectors. All inspectors carry a Church of England Education Office photo ID badge that confirms their DBS status.

The Board of Education has a protocol for church school inspections and follows the deferral procedures as set out by the National Society.


In order to prepare for the inspection each school is expected to ‘ensure that a robust and continuous (Church school) self-evaluation is in place’. This document is offered by the Church of England Education Office as a model which may be used, but schools are free to carry out their Church school audit/self-evaluation however they feel its appropriate for them. This could be in the form of a mind-map, spider diagram, charts etc. There is also now a separate form to be filled in to make the case for excellence. Finally, there is a SIAMS reflection form which, if schools choose to use it, could best be used as an ongoing audit tool to share with governors, keeping them informed of progress in the school.

Here is a checklist to help ensure that your school celebrates on your website its Christian foundation and how it impacts on every aspect of school life.

Each year a summary of the inspections is compiled and presented to the Board of Education. It may be useful for those schools waiting to be inspected to have a look at the strengths and weaknesses that were prominent.

Small schools

Small Schools - Planning for the future

In October 2014, the Church of England Education Office produced a document called “Working Together – The Future of Rural Church of England Schools”.

This document looked at the large numbers of small schools in rural settings who are facing tough challenges in the ever changing education landscape.

One of the solutions to some of these challenges was for small schools to work together in both formal and informal collaborations, so that resources and best practice can be shared to maximise school improvement and impact.

This, in itself, is a challenge as the nature of the schools mean that they are sometimes in remote locations.

There seemed to be a need for some sort of financial planning tool that would enable small schools to take a strategic approach to their future.

Drb Limited was asked to work with the Academy Adviser to look at producing a “Small Schools Planning Tool” which could be used by groups of small schools to model their budgets and funding to establish if working collaboratively or joining together as a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) would be sustainable for them.

Kolkata school links

The Board of Education has been working hard to develop links with schools in Kolkata mainly overseen by the Cathedral Relief Service in Kolkata. 

Over twenty schools in Derby City and Derbyshire have participated in reciprocal visits with schools in Kolkata and many have an ongoiung realtionship with their link schools. This is the story of how these links have been set up and what are our hopes for the future. A book in the Grove Educaiton series, Sustaining Global School Links, has been written by Anita Matthews and Alison Brown based on the thinking behind these links.

A set of collective worships have been written to help you explore our links with Kolkata and the theological elements of Wisdom, Hope, Community and Dignity. They use the Seeing Anew Approach. 

Here is a set of slides about our links in Kolkata. There are notes for the slides.

There are also sets of photos on these themes with accompanying notes: Kolkata Schools, Places of Worship, Puja, Transport, Water, and other photos. Mr Cuddles had adventures in Kolkata which your younger pupils might enjoy! 

There is also a six-minute film which will help give staff and pupils a flavour of the schools in Kolkata.

Instrument of Governance

All governing bodies of maintained schools are required to be constituted under the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 or the School  Governance (Federations) (England) Regulations 2012.

Click here for the statutory guidance (2012) containing the ratios for membership of governing bodies [PDF].

Click here for the  May 2014 guide to the constitution of governing bodies [PDF]. This guidance is about the constitution of governing bodies and their size, membership  and skills. It also explains the arrangements for the constitution of governing bodies of maintained schools constituted under the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012.

If you wish to amend your constitution at any time, taking into account completed skills audit, send your revised draft instrument to the LA (Derby City or Derbyshire) for checking and they will issue an updated instrument of governance including some wording that is required by the Diocese. The LA then seek our approval so that both the LA and Diocese have approved the final version of the document.

For Derby City Schools email the Governor Support Manager and for Derbyshire County Schools email Governor Support Services.

Church Schools' Conference

[Image to go here - PDF to be added below]

Our most recent Church Schools’ Celebration happened on the 4th November 2019.

We were delighted to be joined by Bishop Libby and to have a group of pupils from Mapperley CE Primary, St Laurence CE Primary and St John’s Belper CE Primary helping us in the opening session in singing a couple of PopUK songs.

Along with a choice of 18 workshops and a resources market place, we celebrated with bunting made by attending schools, chocolate and a raffle!

The latter was very generously contributed to by many of the market place stall holders such as a year’s subscription to REtoday and also Fishy Music.

Thank you to them and all those who contributed in many ways to make the day such a joyful celebration.

Bishop's Badge for Schools

In the academic year 2017/18, we started having a shared Christian value across our schools. We have taken a different focus for each year from the Church of England Vision for Education – Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good. The focus for these awards for 2020/21 is Dignity and here are the supporting leafelts to help you think what this might look like in your school. Dignity1 Dignity 1a. Dignity 2

In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic meant that nominations and presentations had a different feel to them - and you can see details of one of the presentations made, as a Year 6 pupil became the first to receive a Bishop's Badge Schools Award online.

“It is obviously true that good schools help produce an educated workforce. But the Christian vision is a far greater one. It is about setting a framework for children as they learn, which enables them to be confident when faced with the vast challenges that our rapidly changing culture brings to us." Archbishop Justin Welby.

Welcome to church schools in the Diocese of Derby.

There are 111 Church Schools in the Diocese who work very hard to provide the best possible education for the pupils in their care based on the Christian principle that Every Child Matters to God.

The schools are supported by the Board of Education whose vision is "to offer our children and young people life in all of its fullness".

Here you’ll find a wealth of information provided by the Derby Diocesan Board of Education to support school headteachers, teachers and school governors.

The Church of England has set out a clear vision for education (Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good) in which it states:

"There are fundamental reasons, rooted the Bible, which have motivated centuries of Christian involvement in schooling hates country and around the world. The God of all creation is concerned with everything related to education…  Our vision encompasses the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional moral and social development of children and young people. We offer a vision of human flourishing for all, one that embraces excellence and academic rigour, but sets them in a wider framework. This is worked out theologically and educationally through four basic elements which permeate our vision for education: Wisdom; Hope; Community and Dignity."

Three reasons to choose a church school

Church of England schools are highly effective

Ofsted judges 87% of our schools to be Outstanding or Good and 95% are judged Outstanding or Good in their SIAMS inspections.

Church of England schools are diverse

In Derbyshire, they include:

  • Schools in both predominantly urban areas, and predominantly rural areas
  • Schools which consistently appear in the list of England’s highest performing schools
  • Schools which serve the needs of children who live in some of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the county
  • Schools which serve children of all faiths and none (including some primary schools with an almost exclusively Muslim population)

Church of England schools are distinctive

Church of England schools have a distinctive identity and ethos, popular with parents and families, where the development of social, spiritual and emotional intelligence is as important as academic achievement.

They are disinctive in their leadership and management, their religious education and collective worship.
