Christian Values in Schools

The National Society which is responsible for resourcing and supporting Church of England and Church of Wales schools identified 15 values they see as important in Christian education. Their Christian Values for Schools website outlines these values and provides a range of resources for exploring them in schools.

Each value is outlined and has a theological background with Biblical references to support its meaning. Their are accompanying questions, cameos and videos to further assist those wishing to instil the value in the areas of ethos, worship, curriculum and leadership.''

In the resources section there are training units to help school introduce the values and implement them in their context.These includes notes and well made powerpoint presentations.

Although this material all comes from a British perspective much of it could very easily be adapted and used for not only Anglican schools but Christian schools in Australia.
