CODE OF PRACTICE

All storytellers agree to...

  • stick to the script and present the story simply, without addition or improvisation following the guidelines in the Open the Book Handbook
  • allow each story to speak for itself, as a Bible story, not as a sermon
  • liaise closely and sensitively with schools, and be mindful of the educational environment
  • make minimal demands on schools and be aware of being invited visitors
  • show respect and sensitivity to those of other faiths, and to those with none
  • fulfil the relevant safeguarding requirements
  • uphold the copyright of Open the Book material.

Volunteer storytellers should be accompanied by members of staff during all storytelling sessions.
