Event description
A day conference for all Christians involved or interested in Education

About this Event

Aim of the conference: There is an ongoing focus in education on Fundamental British Values and the increasingly propagated vision of education being to “prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.” This conference will explore the contribution Christian teachers, governors, schools, parents and others can provide for a deeper and more robust vision of common life in Britain, that upholds a plural education system that doesn’t leave Christian or other religious people as outsiders in an exclusively secular-defined “modern” Britain.
