‘Understanding Christianity’ is based around a selection of core Christian concepts. Seeking to raise the levels of pupil’s religious literacy, it is structured to deepen pupils’ understanding of the story of Christianity alongside key beliefs and practices.
The resources have been created by Church of England Education Department advisers and members of the RE Today team.
Understanding Christianity will form a key part of the forthcoming Diocesan Syllabus for RE and is relevant for all schools. The reources are only available through acredited training.
