Spirituality at Little Heaton CE
At Little Heaton CE we believe children live up to their potential if they are happy, have fun, feel nurtured and grow from a foundation of strong Christian Values. We value spirituality and the holistic development of the child. We fully embrace the National Curriculum by “promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.” Our role as educators is to guide the children in our care along the path of life.
“We touch spirituality when we encounter an experience on life’s journey that causes us to reflect on the deeper things of life, its meaning and our purpose within it, and as a consequence our lives are transformed.” Jon Westwood.
As children grow in their understanding of spirituality and values are embedded they become secure enough to make mistakes and therefore move on with their spiritual learning and academic growth.
Staff, our Faith Ambassadors and other pupil's have recently been involved in a workshop where we discussed Spirituality and came up with a list of all the ways we encourage and develop Spirituality in our school.
Each half term a Spirituality question is posed to the children to help them reflect on themselves and the world around them.
