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 'Spiritual Moments' display in the hall (pictured) to learn more about these. Through these Spiritual Moments we provide opportunities for the children to 'pause for thought' and reflect deeply. This enables them to think carefully about the world around them and to consider their role within it.
