Vision, Mission and Purpose

The Church of England Birmingham Diocesan Board of Education has a strong commitment to ensuring that all people within its schools have the opportunity to flourish, within an understanding of what God desires for humanity. Believing that human beings are ‘created in the image of God’ (Genesis 1.27) our schools should be places where each may learn and grow to become more fully what we were created to be.

The Birmingham Church of England Education Team works to support and challenge every school so that they do their utmost to guarantee that all pupils, given their differing starting points and individual learning needs, will make at least good levels of progress in English and Maths and achieve.

We are about supporting schools to enable excellence in our schools within a distinctively Christian framework.
