Activities

CEP can develop lesson plans on any topic for the RE Syllabus or PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) that a school may require.

All our activities are free to schools and we work in the majority of schools across the Borough.

Some of these activities relate to specific times in the year, e.g. Transitional workshops are in the last 4 weeks of the summer term for Year 6.

Prayer Space

Prayer spaces are an opportunity for students to take a step back from the rigours of everyday life.  Students are enabled to explore creatively their own spirituality and to consider deeper life questions. The spaces provide time for personal growth within a shared class experience 

We have provided prayer spaces with the themes of …….. These have taken place across both Primary and Secondary settings. 

In addition, we have facilitated students to create their own prayer spaces, through workshops and providing recourses

Mentoring and Mental Health

We are able to work with a small number of schools to offer a weekly mentoring programme or wellbeing groups. Here pupils can work either one to one or in small groups with a schools worker to promote self-esteem and wellbeing. Focus is on topics such as building confidence, managing emotions and growth mindset. This has been well received by the schools and students. There has been positive feedback from parents who have contacted the schools about the sessions. If you are interested in mentoring provision for your school, please contact the office to join the waiting list.

Assemblies

Our most popular assembly times are Harvest, Christmas and Easter. However, we take assemblies throughout the year on a range of themes. Generally, our assemblies include a Bible story as well as application of themes found within the stories to real life to encourage personal reflection and social engagement. They are fun and lively, typically with a game or activity to start. 

Lessons in RE Curriculum

Our project leader is an experienced RE teacher and currently chairs Redbridge SACRE. As such our lessons are closely tailored to the Redbridge Agreed Syllabus (or to the outcomes of your own syllabus if you are using an alternative one). As well as providing high quality learning to meet agreed outcomes, we offer pupils the chance to ask questions of people of faith. This enables students to enter into dialogue about beliefs, their importance to the individual and their impact on society. We can also do workshops which may not otherwise be met with the schools budget – for example we can offer Christingle making and themed craft activities.  All materials provided are free of charge

Team Building Workshops

Our most popular assembly times are Harvest, Christmas and Easter. However, we take assemblies throughout the year on a range of themes. Generally, our assemblies include a Bible story as well as application of themes found within the stories to real life to encourage personal reflection and social engagement. They are fun and lively, typically with a game or activity to start. 

GCSE Revision

Pre pandemic the CEP team were able to offer GCSE revision conferences hosted at City Gates Church.  Speakers have given talks on …… directing supporting the (board ) syllabus. After each talk there is time for students and speakers to engage in Q and A. In addition, there are hands on workshops that creatively engage the students with the content of the GCSE and advise on how to approach exam questions. 

Trips to Places of Worship

Our most popular assembly times are Harvest, Christmas and Easter. However, we take assemblies throughout the year on a range of themes. Generally, our assemblies include a Bible story as well as application of themes found within the stories to real life to encourage personal reflection and social engagement. They are fun and lively, typically with a game or activity to start. 

Christingles and Christmas Workshops

Each year we have a Christmas assembly that we offer out to all schools, which tells the traditional story of Jesus’ birth.  In addition, we can run hugely popular Christingle workshops where students have the chance to make their own Christingle and learn about it’s symbolism.  For younger students we have a ‘knitted nativity’ which we use to tell the Christmas story in a fun and accessible way. 

Christingle workshops are made possible by the generous support with donations and discounts from local grocers and wholesalers …….( name them?)
