From reflecting on their own beliefs and values to the fascination of learning about the world around them UAK students experience a wide range of formal and informal activities to help them extend their understanding of spiritual elements. Activities include, but are not limited to, a trip to Alton Towers to bring their learning of Physics to life, a community based challenge to further develop their understanding of their own identity and the identity of those around them and the planning and creation of Children in Need charity events to promote their creative skills.
Ofsted consider the spiritual development of pupils to be shown by their:
• ability to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values
• sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them
• use of imagination and creativity in their learning
• willingness to reflect on their experiences.
Below are a collection of images that demonstrate the way in which UAK students are extending their spiritual development.
