Welcome to the Oxford Diocesan Board of Education (ODBE) webpages.  The Board exists to serve its 283 church schools and the wider community of parishes, clergy, children, young people and families of our diocese who have links with education.  We are passionate about schools and their ability to offer an excellent and inclusive education which is welcoming to those of all faiths and none.

We appoint and support governors of church schools, work with governing bodies and academy directors to appoint and develop headteachers and many other teachers and senior leaders.  We offer advice, expertise and a wide range of training and professional development opportunities, support for capital building projects and admissions and appeals protocols.  Our services to schools include headteacher performance management, governance checks, performance audits, inspection preparation and ethos development through our service level agreement.

We exist to support our local communities to witness to the Christian gospel and enable all our pupils to have the best possible educational experience and life chances.
