At Whitewater C of E Primary School we believe that spiritual development is a fundamental aspect of children's personal progress that exists beyond faith or religious affiliation. We work to enable children to develop holistically in order that they become happy, fulfilled, spiritually aware, and socially and emotionally engaged.
At Whitewater we develop spirituality by being creative and engaging, by enabling our pupils to connect with stories, by empowering our children to ask and respond to questions, by promoting play and creativity, by developing relationships, by providing a sense of belonging, and through the use of rituals and symbols.
We explore spirituality through Mirror, Door, Window and Candle Moments during collective worship and the wider school day. (Please see the image below to learn more.) Through these Spiritual Moments we provide opportunities for the children to reflect and think more deeply. This enables them to think carefully about the world around them and to consider the contribution they can make to it.
