What is The Story Tent?

The Story Tent offers easily accessible online teaching materials to support KS2 pupils to learn more about Religion and Worldviews through the lens of story. It provides resources that develop skills for intercultural and interfaith dialogue through an inquiry-based approach with an exploration of difference at its heart. The Story Tent equips pupils with the confidence they need to live well in our increasingly globalised and diverse societies. 

Future Events

Learning to communicate

The Story Tent provides age-appropriate resources to help pupils to become effective communicators and agents of change in an increasingly globalised world. It helps them to develop the confidence and skills to live well with difference in our increasingly interfaith and intercultural societies.


A safe place for exploration

The Story Tent creates a safe space where pupils can bring their full identity and experiences to the encounter. It is a place which exists outside of right and wrong to reflect a variety of beliefs, holding different views in tension to create points of connection across religious and cultural boundaries.


A catalyst for building connections

The Story Tent provides a context which can act as a catalyst to bring together and build bridges across different religious and non-religious communities. It provides a public space where children can develop acceptance and understanding of others whilst still honoring genuine differences in religious and cultural beliefs.


Background 

The Story Tent was born from a research program to understand how children can be helped to 'live well with difference' - to develop good communication and relationship skills for a diverse world.

The Story Bank

The stories in the Story Bank are great resources to use in the classroom.
