Church School Conference 2011
8 September 2011 Children's
Spirituality: Can we spot it, support it and develop it?
programme and information on keynote speakers
The 1988 Education Reform Act
explicitly referenced 'the spiritual' as a dimension to be
developed in school and over the past 23 years much has been said
and written about the topic of children's spirituality and how this
can be spotted, supported, developed and assessed in schools.
This Conference continued the debate and addressed some of those
central concerns: Is it possible to identify children's
spirituality? How might practitioners nurture and support
spirituality in (and outside) the classroom? How might this
be approached in Church Schools? What about children in
un-churched and non-faith backgrounds? What about the
teachers spirituality? Are there any tried and tested methods
that actually work?
