The Doncaster Schools Worker Trust was established in 1995 and has been working with schools throughout Doncaster ever since.
Representing a number of different churches in partnership with Scripture Union, we help schools fulfil the Education Act requiring the provision of mainly ‘Christian’ assemblies by supporting primary schools’ RE curriculum to gain an understanding of the Bible, biblical feasts and Christian celebrations.
As a Christian organisation, we are perfectly placed to tackle many of the social challenges that young people and children face and present them with opportunities to explore faith in relevant and engaging ways. Since we started, thousands of pupils have had their aspirations raised and have explored the topic of faith in unique ways. In secondary schools OFSTED have placed an increasing importance on SMSC, and DSWT offers schools the opportunity to develop this part of the curriculum in an exciting and relevant way.

Linda has been with the Trust since its inception. From a non-Christian background, she came to faith as a result of the seed sown by a Gideon’s New Testament given to her at secondary school. A graduate of Moorlands Bible College, Linda’s heart for working with schoolchildren grew through outreach in Northern Ireland and South Wales. She also has a passion for working with local church teams in Open the Book and other special projects.
