Welcome to our Prayer Space

We opened our Prayer Space today 23rd May, Prayer Spaces in Schools enable children and young people, of all faiths and none, to explore these life questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, creative and interactive way. Taking a broadly Christian perspective as a starting point, prayer spaces give children and young people an opportunity to develop skills of personal reflection and to explore prayer in an open, inclusive and safe environment. The approach does not proselytise and purposely allows pupils to make their own meaning and to draw their own conclusions.

The Prayer Space has been well received by our pupils and we look forward to the working with St Mary’s Church and the community to bring everyone together.

Below are some comments from our pupil;

“I like how calm it was and everybody paying quietly” Jayden

“I love the pray area because it is so peaceful and calm” Anastasia

“I love the teepee and prayer space, it is a lovely place to pray” Zaphane
