Due to popular demand, we are delighted to offer another online Understanding Christianity Course.

The course aims to develop pupils’ understanding of key concepts in Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.

This 3-session course will give teachers full access to this outstanding resource and nationally recognised system of learning in RE.

Each session will include setting teachers a ‘gap task’, trialling an aspect of the resource in school.

Feedback and discussion on these ‘gap tasks’ will be included in following each session, so that teachers can share ideas and learn from each other’s experiences.


The expectation is that teachers in primary schools will have at least 10 hours of CPD on Understanding Christianity.

You will need to attend all 3 sessions and complete all 7 modules.

For Community schools, the course is subsidised and includes a teacher’s Handbook, 22 detailed units of work for primary – 20 of them match the primary units from the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus, over 100 pages of photocopiable resources, a wall frieze and full online access to resources. (CoE schools also have the option of purchasing this)
