'Let your light shine' (Matthew 5:16)


Spirituality in Religious Education

Spiritual development is nurtured in Religious Education through:

  • Reflecting on people, places, things, books, actions and ideas held by religious believers to be holy
  • Asking 'Big Questions' about meaning and purpose
  • Exploring ideas of the divine / questions of God
  • Researching different forms of worship
  • Using music, art and drama to express beliefs
  • Discovering a variety of beliefs, celebrations and rituals
  • Suggesting ways religion can create a sense of belonging and commitment to groups and institutions
  • Appreciating the idea of mystery and questions with no clear answers
