Welcome to Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity

ENRICHING RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & PROMOTING THE SMSC & BRITISH VALUES CURRICULA IN YOUR SCHOOL

Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity (PCFCD) was established in 2001 and since its inception, has successfully created thousands of opportunities for children and young people to meet speakers from a variety of faiths and cultural backgrounds in schools and other settings.

 

These encounters allow children to experience the reality of religion as a way of living life and identify the values that all religions teach, thus enabling schools to address the statutory requirements of the 2014 “Engaging With Religion and World Views” Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, through lively and creative learning.

 

Through diversity they can see the common thread of human and spiritual values that underpin what it means to be human. These values ensure the future security and well-being of our local and international community and support the development of mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, key aspects of British values and community cohesion.
