Primary and Secondary Resources

CROPS currently provides a number of resources to primary and secondary schools for example:

  • Thought provoking assemblies for primary and secondary schools
  • Spiritual Development resources for collapsed timetable days such as 'Breathe' (ideal for secondary SMSC or RE).
  • 'Walk Thru The Bible' series of lessons for Primary Schools using storytelling/drama to teach the storyline of the old and new testaments of the Bible.
  • It's Your Move - transition to secondary school presentation for Year 6 pupils.
  • Mentoring for young people in secondary schools with specific identified needs (working alongside school pastoral teams)
  • Hosting unique RE resources such as the 'GSUS LIVE' multimedia mobile classroom - that explores the teaching of Jesus.
