Faith at Home

Faith At Home resources from the Church of England, seek to support the faith development and pastoral care of children and young people:

It seeks to provide:

  • experiences that inspire parents and families to grow in faith together in the ‘new daily normal’ of the home
  • resources that equip children and young people to explore faith together and feel supported pastorally as part of school and church communities
  • networks that connect school leaders, church leaders and chaplains to share great practice and build community together focused on the faith development of children and young people.

 

A Brief Introduction to the Christian Faith for Staff Parents and Carers in Peterborough Diocese Schools 

For all staff and parents / carers in our Church of England school communities wanting to know more about the Christian faith, our Chair of the Diocesan Board of Education has recorded 4 x 6 minute talks, introduced here by Archdeacon Richard himself:

‘Is there a God? Who is Jesus? What is a Christian? How can I pray?'

They’re big questions, but we are so busy that we just don’t have the time to think about them. In case it’s useful to you, I have produced four “Six Minute Starters” – audio files, where I simply chat about each of these questions in turn. Why not pour yourself a well-deserved mug of coffee and listen - https://www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/christian-faith/christian-faith.

The science behind why

This week we're joined by scientist, doctor and broadcaster Professor Robert Winston, who was challenged by students from the Frank Wise School to answer all of the questions they had about science. With questions ranging from thunderstorms to vaccines there's almost nothing he couldn't explain.

Kindness

This week we're incredibly excited to be joined by The Duchess of Cambridge, who wants to share the importance of spreading a little kindness for our mental wellbeing. This assembly is based on a lesson plan which is available on the Mentally Healthy Schools Platform. It was developed in collaboration with children’s mental health charity Place2Be and encourages children to explore ways in which they can show kindness, and recognise the benefits of kindness to others.

Togetherness

This week's assembly is all about Togetherness and supporting each other. We have a speaker from the Holocaust Education Trust, Vera Schaufeld, who came to the UK as a child refugee on the Kindertransport. The issues and subject matter are sensitive, and this assembly has been designed for older pupils.
