The Stapleford Centre is a volunteer-led and run charity that seeks to shape Christian engagement in education. Having emerged from a period of transition in 2012-13 it is working out its aims through to broad areas of resourcing and relationships.
This area will see the Centre, through the targeted use of consultants, disseminate its resources for use by Christian teachers, Christian academics and those teaching Christianity in RE. The Stapleford Centre website (www.stapleford-centre.org) will be re-focused on supporting Christian teachers whilst www.staplefordresources.co.uk will be completed for use by teachers teaching Christianity within the RE curriculum. A new website to support Christian academics is under active consideration. If constructed this would contain the bulk of the work The Stapleford Centre has authored in the fields of Christian pedagogy, spiritual/moral education, research and praxis.
The trustees recognise the need to actively maintain the partnerships and relationships that The Stapleford Centre is currently engaged in. Over the next twelve months they will maintain the Centre’s presence on the Evangelical Alliance’s Forum for Change Education Cluster Group and will continue to send a representative to the RE Council’s bi-annual meeting. They are also engaged in ongoing discussions with organisations to secure the long term future of the Centre. This could see the Centre’s thinking and academic legacy embedded within the work of another organisation for the long term benefit of both organisations.
A lot has happened this last year, as we work to continue to secure the legacy of the Stapleford Centre while moving forward, in pace with God's leading, to be a transforming Christian influence in Education.
Here is an overview of what we are up to at the moment - as always, we appreciate prayer!
The Stapleford Centre is supporting an e-petition, whose purpose is to ask Mr Gove and the Department for Education to provide government support for RE.
If you feel as strongly about this as we do, we would appreciate it if you could sign this, and, most importantly, pass it onto your contacts. Thank you!
The Stapleford Centre was present and took part in the Education Cluster that has been part of the EA's Forum for Change. It was a fruitful time of seeking God and praying for Christian education in this country. Please pray for a way forward for this important work, as the Evangelical Alliance rethinks its strategy.
As a member body of the Religious Education Council of England and Wales we attended the AGM recently. Developments in RE remain concerning, and John Keast, OBE, the chair of the REC outlined the political developments that are giving cause for concern. As an organisation, the Stapleford Centre remains committed to RE as a subject.
What motivates Christian Education Practitioners? Building on his recent research around the theme of 'theological drivers' that resource Christians in education, Dr Howard Worsley joined us in Rugby for a day of exploring the drivers that motivate Christian Education Practitioners in the field. Delegates came away refreshed and ready to put the ideas into practice in their respective professional environments.
