Speaking about today’s seminar, Archbishop Justin said: “The Church of England was at the beginning of national education of this country and continues to be crucial to its flourishing. Today, bishops and diocesan board of education chairs have worked together to develop a vision for the future of church schools which will continue our mission of transforming every part of our society.
“It is obviously true that good schools help produce an educated workforce. But the Christian vision is a far greater one. It is about setting a framework for children as they learn which enables them to be confident when faced with the vast challenges that our rapidly changing culture brings to us.
