The Education Team produce their own, effective resources for use in Collective Worship and Religious Education lessons. Many of these are available free of charge as downloads from this page. Others are commercially printed resource packs for which a charge is made to cover costs. Additionally, postage and packing is charged at cost unless schools or individuals can arrange collection of the item(s) from the St Nicholas Centre in Ipswich (IP1 1UQ).

We anticipate that all of the resources listed here will be in stock at all times - if a title is not highlighted in purple this indicates that we are reprinting the pack or awaiting stock from a supplier.

  • The Emmanuel Project-+

    The Emmanuel Project

    The Emmanuel Project is an RE scheme of work for EYFS to Y6 which covers the Suffolk Agreed Syllabus for RE (2012). Written by the Diocesan Schools' Adviser in consultation with local teachers and advised by members of different faiths on Suffolk SACRE, the scheme is suitable for all Suffolk schools, except for RC schools which have their own syllabus. Schools' Choice advertises training on the materials.

    The Emmanuel Project provides a complete set of 42 enquiry based units for teaching RE across the primary school:

    • 22 units on Christianity from EYFS to KS2
    • 20 units on other world faiths for KS1 / KS2

    The CD costs £150.00 (plus p&p +VAT) for new buyers and £75.00 (plus p&p +VAT) to those who bought the earlier CD on Christianity. This earlier Christianity only CD is still available to buy £75.00 (plus p&p +VAT).

  • Bereavement-+

    Schools are very much at the front line when a bereavement occurs. It might – tragically – be a pupil who has died, a member of staff, a member of a child’s/member of staff’s family or a Governor or other member of the local community. In all schools – Church and Community – we would hope that local Clergy are able to take a lead in supporting those affected by the loss and in many circumstances help has also been sought from the LA. However, we recognise that for many schools access to a ready-made resource for use in these circumstances would prove helpful.

    We have put together two identical packs - each containing some 20 books along with a tactile Badger soft-toy - that have proved effective and have been recommended by those working in this area of pastoral need. Some of the books are for pupils, some for adults and others provide starting points for discussion of the “what if” scenarios. There are also links to the websites of national organisations such as The Child Bereavement Charity and Edward's Trust.

    You can borrow either set of resources by contacting Jacqui Studd or call 01473 298570. They are loaned free-of-charge and without time limit. 

  • Kagera Link-+

    Our Diocesan link with the Anglican Diocese of Kagera in Tanzania is greatly strengthened by the close relationship we have built with the Ngara Anglican Primary School (NAPS). Contact Jean Daltry, Kagera Link Co-ordinator for resources and other goodies which we hope will inspire you to find ways of informing your pupils about NAPS, the work they do and our fund-raising for them.
