SPIRITUALITY AND PUPIL-LED WORSHIP – ONLINE COURSE
COURSE LEAD: Elaine Arundell
The AIM of this course is to share ways of developing the prayer life and spirituality of staff and pupils which will ideally have a positive impact on wellbeing and relationships and enhance child-led worship in the school.
If you have already attended our Spirituality course in the past, there is no need to attend again as it is an exact repeat of this course. The Pupil-led Worship course will develop the spirituality of pupils further in terms of prayer and liturgy in the context of the new Inspection Framework. It will offer guidance and support for developing pupil-led worship in the primary school from EYFS to Year6 and provide various up-to-date resources.
Spirituality: 1.30pm to 3.00pm
Pupil-Led Worship: 3.30pm to 5.00pm
- Share ideas and resources for pupil-led worship using a toolkit with the structure: Gather, Listen, Respond, Mission in the context of the new Inspection Framework.

- Offer practical ideas and resources for spirituality days or retreats such as those based on The Year of the Word and The Year of St Joseph.
