We hold Spirituality Days because we are a faith school and believe that, because God is the Creator of all things, there are many links to be found between faith and life.
OFSTED is also very interested in the spiritual development of young people in our schools and look for evidence of it in their Inspections.
OFSTED says that a child’s spiritual development is shown by the:
- ability to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values
- sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them
- use of imagination and creativity in their learning
- willingness to reflect on their experiences.
We believe our Spirituality Days, Worship and SMSC lessons, as well as our Religious Education curriculum, help us deliver this.
