Schools and churches can support each other in a variety of ways. The synergy between the two can lead to creative partnerships that enhance the learning for children.
Some schools and churches, despite their close proximity and shared ethos, do not have established links. If you’re a church or a school not yet linked to one another, let us put you in touch with your local minister or headteacher.
Contact Ali Driver for more information, she'd be delighted to hear from you and introduce you to your local church or school.

There are lots of ways your church can support you as a school, and vice-versa. Both school and church have a shared common concern: they both want the best for young people in the community.
The following leaflet produced by the Diocese of Bristol is a great place to start when thinking about a church-school link. It’s full of ideas to kick-start discussion on ‘growing together in faith and service in the community’.
One way in which Churches support their local Church school is through nominating suitable candidates to become foundation governors. As well as being full members of a governing board foundation governors have a particular responsibility within church schools to preserve and develop the Christian character and ethos of the school.
