Church of England Vision for Education
Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good
The Church of England’s Vision for Education (2016) is deeply Christian, with Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ at its heart.
In line with the Church of England’s role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.
Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.
Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.
Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.
Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
Additionally, Vocation, Transformation and Hope (2021) is a vision for the Church of England’s engagement with Further Education and Faith in Higher Education (2020) is the vision for Higher Education. Both compliment the Church of England’s Vision for Education.
