Reflection Corners and Prayer Spaces

Each classroom has a reflection corner - these are updated by class teachers and Junior Chaplains. We also have reflection areas in the entrance hall, the school hall and the library. 

We have regular prayer spaces held each term. These are led by the Deputy Headteacher and are sometimes led jointly with the church.

 Pupil voice from our Prayer Space

I can't believe we got to write prayers on the walls and floors! - Year 3 pupil
It was good to use the courtyard to reflect and think about God - Year 6 pupil
I really liked shredding my worries, it was like a weight off my chest - Year 5 pupil 
It was so lovely seeing children from across the school spend time reflecting on Big Questions - staff member
