Church schools are different not because they are exclusive but because they are distinctive. But just what constitutes this distinctiveness? It is more than a matter of ‘caring and sharing’.This timely book seeks to help all concerned with education in church schools to explore this question. John Cox, a recently retired Diocesan Director of Education, suggests that even Christian values are not enough – it is the beliefs that underpin these values that makes the real difference: belief about God, about what it is to be human, about the Church and about the world. This is worked out in terms of the Kingdom values such as justice, forgiveness, gratitude, generosity, truth and love.With chapters that also include a critique of the Every Child Matters agenda, and RE and Collective Worship, this is an invaluable book for head teachers, governors and parish clergy.
