Pause Days

What is a Pause Day?

Pause Days are an exciting initiative from the Schools department of Guildford Diocese Education Centre. They give schools an opportunity to engage with some high level thinking and reflection during an ‘off-timetable’ RE day, which also contributes to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development. Although there will be some significant links with the Diocesan Guidelines for RE, these Pause Day resources are not intended to replace the statutory RE units, but to provide ‘space’ to enhance and deepen pupils’ understanding. At present, there are Pause Day materials for Easter and Pentecost.

The Pause Day materials are:

  • Divided into age-appropriate phases;
  • Designed to be ‘user friendly’, to be detailed and to enable all staff and not just specialists to deliver high quality teaching, learning and reflection;
  • Designed to be delivered in one day.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
