School chaplain resources

We want to equip school chaplains so that you can help the students, staff and families that you work with to engage with the Bible. ​

Primary school resources

Resources for primary schools include our Open the Book programme as well as ones specific for different events that take place throughout the year. 

Open the Book

Open the Book (OtB) offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories told by a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies or acts of collective worship.
