Visits and Visitors

Encountering religious believers and visiting places of worship is one way of helping pupils engage in exploring religions and beliefs in their lived diversity. If you would like advice about planning and organising such opportunities for your pupils, please get in touch with the Diocesan RE Adviser (gillian.georgiou@lincoln.anglican.org).
You can find some general guidance here. It might also be helpful to contact your local SACRE, who should be able to offer support.
