    tea and cake or death

    Sorry been watching Eddie Izzard recently.


    Their ethos? Serving the community (as you can see from the many CofE schools around the country) is one part of it I think.

    A bizarre first post, to be sure. More so due to the nature of this site...

    Religious schools are able to give preference in employment to teachers whose religious beliefs are in accordance with the religious tenets on which the school is based.
    As Far as I know, this only applies to teachers. So The Job Advertisement may not be legal under employment equality laws.

    Wikipedia entry on CoE. Not much about the 'ethos' though.

    This may be of more use

    or this

    I work at a catholic school but am anglican (Church of england) myself. The job description highlighted the catholic ethos and in the interview I was asked about my feelings on their catholic ethos. I just blathered for a few minutes on how much i respected the use of a guiding religous ethos and how applicable it was to a school situation. Smiles all around.

    Read up on the anglican church or better still find as many school as possible which are c of e and read their websites.

    "A copy of an ethos statement which has been adopted by the majority of Church of England schools is as follows:

    Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.

    The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils."

    ...that help?
