“The Oxford Diocesan Board of Education exists to promote Christian education of the highest quality in all our schools and we see our schools at the centre of the mission and ministry of the Diocese. Church schools have their foundation in the Christian Gospel and daily life in a church school will reflect that foundation throughout the whole curriculum and ethos of the school.”
Open the Book is a national project whose aims are “Enabling every child to hear the story of the Bible at school in their primary years”. Essentially it brings bible stories to life at primary school assemblies. It has been a huge success at St Nicholas Church School in East Challow, and the congregation of the local church have thoroughly enjoyed participating.
