About this Event

Spiritual Development

Date: 24 March 2021 Time: 09.30 - 15.30

Target Group: Spiritual Development Leaders/SMSC Subject Leaders, RE Subject Leaders/ Heads of RE

Tutor: Shaun Burns, Primary Religious Education Adviser

Spirituality is a key area for nurturing and developing within everyone. It can impact deeply on an individual’s life, character, faith and beliefs. In the church school context it can also make a powerful contribution to the school’s Christian distinctiveness.

For spiritual development to be the most meaningful and effective it needs to be part of a pupil’s holistic education. A school needs to develop a shared interpretation of spirituality and ensure that opportunities for developing spirituality are planned for throughout school life. A Church of England school has a particular responsibility for growing this within its Christian context.

This day will include:

• Models of spiritual development

• The importance of schools developing a shared interpretation of spirituality

• Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development (SMSC) within a Church of England context

• How spiritual development links with Religious Education (RE), other curriculum areas and Collective Worship

• How spiritual development links with other areas of school life

• Progression in spiritual development

• Writing a spiritual development / SMSC policy for a Church of England school

• SMSC as inspected under Ofsted

• Spirituality and the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) Evaluation Schedule
