Spirituality Development

Spiritual Development


As a church school and a place where everyone can flourish we aim to create an environment that will nurture people’s minds, bodies, and souls. We believe that spirituality should influence all areas of education and life. Therefore, we ensure that throughout the curriculum there are rich deep thinking opportunities that contribute to pupils’ spiritual development. 


Spiritual development relates to fundamental questions about the meaning and purpose of life which affect everyone and is not dependent on a religious affiliation.


As a church school, we are guided by the Christian faith and Christian values which Christians hold dear. However, we truly welcome all and we openly encourage children to reflect in the way that suits them best, enabling them to participate in an ongoing process of spiritual realisation and to flourish in a way that will help them find peace, comfort, and strength throughout life's ever-changing journey, living out our school vision root in John 14:6 I am the way and the truth and the life - Inspire-Believe-Achieve

Parents and Children's Spiritual development: A Faith in the Nexus Animation

Our Faith in the Nexus animation for parents recognises that all children have a spiritual life that drives them to seek meaning and purpose in life. Often in this search, children turn to their parents with big questions about things such as the origin of life, the existence of God, and life after death.
