School Definition of Spirituality
Spirituality is the heartbeat of our school. It is how we understand our place in the world, believing in something so much larger than ourselves: recognising our strengths and weaknesses and having the confidence to challenge ourselves and ask the “big questions”.
Spirituality enhances our sense of identity and purpose; it affirms Christian values which underpin our attitudes and learning, and which provide the foundations for how we behave to each other.
spiritual experience is that which enables, or enhances, greater personal integration within a framework of relationships by fostering exploration, conscious and otherwise, of identity and purpose, transcending the current level of self-knowledge and altering, or regaining, appropriate perspectives and values’.
Remembrance Sunday 2018
On Remembrance Sunday, children from Winterbourne Earls laid Wreaths at the War Memorial as part of the Remembrance Day Service in the St Michael's and All Angels in Winterbourne Earls. It was a lovely service and a touching tribute from our pupils. The wreaths had been made by children in the Bourne Forces and Chatterbooks Book Club while they were reading and discussing books about wars and Remembrance in particular.
