Children’s spiritual development is key to their personal growth.
At Colliers Green, we believe that it is important for children to grow into reflective young people.
This is discussed further in Church of England and Ofsted guidance, which stipulates that children should have:
- 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.
- a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.
- use of imagination and creativity in their learning and willingness to reflect on their experiences.
In order to provide avenues and opportunities for our children, staff and families to explore their spirituality we have developed the following: individual class reflection zones, family prayer box, “pause and reflect” signs and areas around the school, our Trinity tree and Forest School tree cookies
