Theological Underpinning of the Curriculum

he Education team have been working on a Theological Framework for Racial Justice, with the aim that schools would use this to underpin their whole curriculum. We would heartily encourage the use of example units which celebrate diversity or ask challenging questions about approaches to difference. However, it is key for us that schools see justice as a key theme running through every aspect of the curriculum - from text choices to artists to historical perspectives to the impact of climate change on our global neighbours.

The theological framework ensures progression through phases (from EYFS) which scaffold pupils' understanding of Racial Justice using key theological concepts already taught in Church of England schools.

The Framework is included in Lament to Action, and has been developed with feedback from the CofE Racial Justice Taskforce.

We currently have schools from the dioceses in our Diversity Network who are exemplifying the framework, so that we can publish both the framework and examples of it in use in September 2022. If you are interested in hearing more about this work, please contact Emily Norman, Head of Partnerships and Inclusion.
