Full or half day sessions available:
Come on an inset day to Christ Church Cathedral. Explore how the Cathedral’s sacred space can enhance the RE curriculum and offer cross-curricular opportunities as well.
We organise special CPD opportunities on specific themes for teachers to meet colleagues from different schools, but you can also come, as a whole staff, to develop your planning or refine your RE curriculum or collective worship, while also spending some time together as a School Staff in stillness, reflection, or collective worship.
Opportunities for Teachers and Teaching Assistants to:
- learn mindfulness and meditation techniques to allow yourself space for your own spiritual life.
- consider your own spiritual needs and those of the children you teach.
- discover the hidden meaning of church buildings, their stories, signs and symbols.
- examine how sacred spaces can contribute to children’s learning across the curriculum.

'Thank you so much for today it was truly inspiring. I really enjoyed it and felt that it had a good mix of information, relaxation and interest.' Teacher in Oxfordshire school.
'What a fab day we've just had - it was brilliant!! I must admit that I didn't know quite what to expect, but I enjoyed everything so much. The meditation techniques offered a real insight into just how busy my poor old brain must be and I am determined to put into practise what I have learnt today. The day gave me the opportunity to think about ME - how often do we get the chance to do this?!' Teacher in Oxfordshire school.
