The Church of England Birmingham has a strong commitment to ensuring that all people within its schools have the opportunity to flourish, within an understanding of what God desires for humanity. Believing that human beings are ‘created in the image of God’ (Genesis 1.27), Church schools should be places where each may learn and grow to become more fully what we were created to be.
