Understanding Christianity

Approach to Training & Impact

The Leicester Diocesan Board of Education was amongst the first DBEs to begin training schools in the Understanding Christianity resource as their consultant RE Adviser, Fiona Moss, was one of the Understanding Christianity writers and delivered the ‘Train the Trainer’ workshops in 2016. 

Over 95% of schools in Leicester diocese are now trained in the Understanding Christianity resource. 

In October 2018, the Assistant Director, Yolanda Morley-McKay and Fiona Moss from RE Today carried out an evaluation of the impact of the training received.

The use of the Understanding Christianity resource by teachers has radically improved the teaching of Christianity across the diocese and more widely across the country in both Community and church schools.

This event will be an opportunity to see samples of work, hear case studies of good practice from Leicestershire and beyond and share successes and challenges. During the session there will be opportunity to ask questions form your own school context and hear about new resources to support the teaching of Christianity.
