Diocese of York Annual Education Conference

We are pleased to announce that our annual education conference will be held at York Racecourse on Tuesday 20th June. The annual conference gives the opportunity for the whole family of church schools from across the diocese to meet together for a day focused on the current educational context and how we might seek to further develop our vision and practice as church schools.

With this in mind, this year’s conference will be entitled ‘Vision into Being: Living life in all its fullness’ and will build on last year’s theme of ‘Shaping the Future’. The conference will seek to explore how our vision for church schools is borne out in practice, especially with regards to the key areas of wisdom, hope, community and dignity as set out in the Church of England’s national vision for education. Through thought-provoking keynote speeches, workshops and presentations, the conference will unpick how schools and academies are putting vision into practice in a way that is, in the words of the national vision, both deeply Christian and in the service of the common good.

The plans for the day are being finalised and we will share the full programme later in the term along with the booking process. Please do put the date in the diary now and we hope that representatives from each school and academy will be able to join us on the 20th June.
