Helping primary schools engage with Christianity

Since 1986 we’ve supported primary schools with assemblies, clubs and RE lessons. We are linked with nearly 100 schools in South London and the South East.

We have warm and professional relationships with headteachers and staff in the schools we visit. Our presence is a vital link between schools and local churches.

The study found that when inspected by Jewish inspectors, 71% of the schools were judged to be good or outstanding. However, when inspected by non-Jewish inspectors, only 22% were judged to be good or outstanding.
