Our Vision and Mission

education vision graphic 2000Our Vision: to seek to offer life in all its fullness through learning, growing, building connections and being healthy.

Our Mission: to lead the development of

  • confident and effective church schools and academies that re deeply Christian, belonging at the heart of the church and community, serving the common good 
  • relevant, supportive and caring involvement of our churches in the life of community schools
  • church communities that serve children and young people, their families and households, enabling them to develop worshipping communities where they truly belong and encounter God's love

This is our core purpose, it is why we exist - everything we do will fit with this. 


The Derby Diocesan Board of Education provides statutory functions and advise to school leaders, governors and clergy of our 111 Church schools.

Alongside this we also exist to support and advice work with children and young people across our Church communities.
