Education

Introduction

The references to education in the following points encompass the full range of learning from pre-school education to primary, secondary and further education establishments and on into lifelong learning for all ages and abilities.

Priorities

Priority A - The importance of Christian values in education

In recognition of our rich Christian heritage, we feel that the education system should continue to reflect Christian values that have hitherto been the bedrock of our society.

Priority B - The importance of the development of God-given skills

The education system should build on the value that has been placed on communities and individuals to encourage the development of God-given skills.

Priority C - The importance of the right to express personal faith within the educational context

We uphold the right of individuals, both staff and learners, to express their faith within the educational context.

Priority D - The importance of supporting spiritual and moral development within educational communities

The education of children and young people must not hinder the spiritual and moral development of the next generation.

Priority E - The importance of supporting parents in preparing their children for adult life

We believe it is the responsibility of parents to prepare their children for adult life and state educational provision should support parents in this.

Christian Context

The biblical mandate for upholding strong educational principles can be found throughout the bible including:

Train up a child in the way he should go Proverbs 22:6

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of understanding Proverbs 1:7-9

Teach them diligently Deuteronomy 6:7
