The Revd Stephen Terry

A former parish Priest of 43 years and Governor at community and faith schools for over 35 years, The Revd Stephen Terry has a longstanding passion for education and building inclusive communities.

He has long campaigned for a range of social issues including ending the discriminatory practices – enshrined in current education law – which permit faith schools to operate religiously selective pupil admissions and teacher employment arrangements and to provide a narrow education about religion and beliefs. Stephen says:

“We are fortunate to live in a diverse country, but if we want to ensure it is tolerant, inclusive and cohesive then our schools must encourage and strengthen these values, not work against them. Discrimination and segregation should have no place and least of all within education. The future happiness and wellbeing of society demands that Accord must not rest until a universally fair and inclusive schools system has been adopted.”

Accord depends on your support
