Church of England Education

by Michael Ford last modified 24 Jul, 2018 12:21 PM
Promoting and resourcing 4,700 schools in England and 200 schools in Wales.

Responsible for:

  • Negotiating with Government and other national agencies to maintain and develop the contribution of church schools to public education in England and Wales
  • Supporting and advising diocesan education teams on legal and technical, curriculum and ethos issues
  • Contributing a Christian perspective to national educational debate

The National Society for Promoting Religious Education was established in 1811 to provide schools for poor children. The aim was to found a church school in every parish.

By 1851, 20 years before the state took any responsibility for education, there were 12,000 schools across England and Wales. There are still 4,700 church schools in this country.
