Spiritual Development 

Let Your Light Shine

Our School Vision

We are a safe, happy, inclusive school community where each individual is known and valued. Through our nurturing environment all develop resilience and self-worth to recognise their value as a bearer of God’s light. Strengths and talents are celebrated, whilst knowing that mistakes are an opportunity to learn and grow. Curiosity and enquiry are promoted in our curriculum, bringing learning to life through rich opportunities, knowledge and experiences. All are empowered to be friends for others, able to make change both locally and globally, shining their light with courage and using their voice respectfully to make a positive difference.  

What is spiritual development?

Spiritual development differs from person to person and is a very personal experience. For this reason, it is difficult to put into words. Spirituality concerns a person’s relationship with themselves, with others, with God (or the transcendent) and with nature and the environment. Spirituality is not the same as having a religion or faith; a person can be spiritual without having a particular faith.

In keeping with our Christian Vision, we recognise that we are all created in God’s image and have a spiritual dimension to our existence. We nurture this through the academic rigour we bring to our work and through our passion to help children and adults to flourish and achieve their God given potential.

Spirituality in our school

Spirituality in our school is about how we experience life and how this shapes us to live our lives. It is about our relationship with our self, with others, with God and with the world around us. It allows us to reflect and ask questions to learn about life, knowing that we are an individual and valued. It makes us aware of things bigger than ourselves, which can often make us say ‘wow’ but sometimes ‘ow’.
