Get Fit Go Green workshops provide a proactive and productive way for your school to consider climate change. The workshops offer energetic, action packed dance workshops that sensitively help children think about and discuss climate change and inspire everyone to take action. The work links closely to the Christian faith exploring the idea of stewardship for the planet and those we share with it, looking at Jesus' call to love our neighbour.
Tree Prayers Paul Cudby, the vicar of St. Mary Magdalene, Tanworth in Arden, discovered that his neighbouring church primary school has a prayer garden and so he put together some thoughts and prayers based around the trees in the garden. He has kindly shared them with us to inspire others to do the same in Quiet Gardens in schools, or in any setting. Find out more

Queen’s University Belfast and Hallam Teaching School Alliance (the “project team”) are working together on SMART Spaces, a project funded by Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Wellcome Foundation, which aims to improve revision skills in chemistry and raise GCSE science grades. The effectiveness of the project will be evaluated by a team from UCL Institute of Education (the “evaluation team”). This is a rare opportunity to use research to improve science revision in your school! (MOU SMART Spaces Randomised Control Trial)
Your Space Therapies - What we offer
Child's Trust Fund - The former Government enabled every child born between 1st September 2002 and 2nd January 2011 to have a Child Trust Fund (CTF). If families did not open the account themselves within the first year of birth, HMRC opened and allocated an account for the child concerned. Many of these have not been claimed. See flyer for details on how to find and claim your lost CTF.
Explorify - Spark your pupils curiosity and develop their thinking skills. Explorify is a new programme of free activities for primary school teachers that will help you and your pupils think about the world in a new way. Developed by The Wellcome Trust.
Christian Aid Global Neighbours - As well as the recognition attached to gaining accreditation status, the scheme will also help schools fulfil the Church of England’s vision of education that is deeply Christian and serving the common good. In addition, by helping children claim their voice as global citizens, participation in the scheme will help church schools develop and showcase their work in helping their pupils to become courageous advocates.
