Wirral Youth For Christ has been working with Secondary schools on the Wirral for 30 years. After feedback from supporters and consultation with SACRE, the local education authority
group that meet to discuss R.E. provision, we took the step of creating a Primary school department named the Acorn Primary Schools Project.
Our aim is to see every Primary school on the Wirral having access to a local volunteer who is trained and resourced to provide the school with good quality, regular and sustainable input to assist with R.E. provision where it relates to Christianity.
Over the past few years we have looked to identify, train, resource and encourage local church volunteers in this which means the Acorn Project is very much a partnership between Wirral YFC, the local Church and Primary schools.
