Coventry Peace Walk is coming up next month. It takes in 5 places of worship, so great for teacher RE subject knowledge and to support the planning of RE visits, as well as a thoroughly lovely event.

Thanks to all the fabulous pupils from our schools who joined us for an afternoon of planning collective worship for advent & Christmas. We can’t wait to see your planning sheets & hear all about how it goes! Very exciting! #collectiveworship #advent
