Following on from my previous blog about empowering collaboration, I thought it appropriate to focus on how we can keep connected and support one another at this difficult and challenging time. The word ‘connect ‘comes from the Latin conectere, to join together and in the 19th Century was particularly applied to establishing relationships.
At Culham St Gabriel’s, part of our mission is to support and empower teachers and leaders, as well as establishing and building networks and partnerships. Relationships and connectivity lie at the heart of who we are and what we do.
We have put together some resources and ideas to help teachers and leaders of RE through our RE:ONLINE website. You can find these here There are being updated regularly over the coming few weeks. If you have any ideas about what you would like to us to provide, please get in touch.
We are working hard to maintain and build relationships during this time. We are exploring ways of bringing teachers of RE together virtually to help each other, utilising our virtual meeting platforms and social media. I’d encourage you to sign up to our RE:ONLINE newsletter as we will be increasing our issues over the next few months. You can sign up here
We are keen to promote and share free resources and support available from all our strategic partners. We are therefore delighted to share these free resources from RE Today/NATRE: https://www.natre.org.uk/about-natre/free-resources-for-you-and-your-pupils/
As a team we are all working from home and are still here to help you. If you would like to contact us we suggest emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a call with you.
