Our Agreed Understanding of Spirituality is:
As a school we believe that spirituality is personal to each one of us. It is not something you can see; it is something we feel beyond words. It allows us to learn about everything and everyone else around us. We belong to something bigger, we ask big questions about life and beyond, appreciate creation and the world as well as our responsibilities for it and for others. We take time to reflect on what matters most in order to become the best we can be.
Frenchay Primary Curriculum Drivers
We have developed four curriculum drivers that shape our curriculum. These are closely linked to our vision, aims and values. These all respond to the particular needs and opportunities of our community.
Collaboration – which will encourage pupils to work together, to share skills and resources to ensure a better outcome for all. This will build life long skills which will help them in the outside world/ community.
Diversity and spirituality – which helps pupils to be tolerant, respectful and value the differences in others. This will help them understand their role, rights and responsibilities as a citizen in the local and global community.
Resilience – Encourages our pupils not to give up but enable them to apply a growth mindset.
Curiosity – which helps pupils develop a thirst for knowledge, a desire for a deeper understanding, enables them to question and be inquisitive so they have confidence and a strong sense of self-worth. They develop socially and emotionally and ensure they are equipped to become independent thinkers and lead by example.
