Events

One of the ways in which the DBE supports schools to achieve this is through a programme of events that bring together teachers and leaders across the diocese to share, discuss and learn. 

To book any of these events or for more information please email Karen Colley at karen.colley@sheffield.anglican.org, giving name, school and any dietary requirements where appropriate. 

Please note that there is no longer any parking available at Church House for events and meetings. There are several carparks within easy walking distance of the building which are reasonably priced.
