The following is taken from the Diocese of Bath and Wells website:

Key functions of the Diocesan Board of Education (DBE)

These functions reflect and fall within those outlined in the Diocesan Boards of Education Measure 1991 that are applied to the full DBE.  In summary:

  • To promote education within the diocese, consistent with the faith and practice of the Church of England
  • To promote religious education and religious worship in schools in the diocese
  • To promote church schools and provide advice to governors and trustees
  • To promote partnership between the Board and other bodies concerned with education in the diocese
  • Other functions assigned to the DBE by the Diocesan Synod (in this diocese there is a mandate to include the support of work with children and young people in parishes and deaneries within the remit of the DBE)
