Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.’ 1 Thessalonians 5:11


At Thatcham Park we believe the spiritual, moral, social and culture development of our whole school family is rooted in our Biblical narrative and vision.  We believe we have a responsibility to teach, guide and provide opportunities for children and adults to be the best they can be.

“Together we aspire to nurture and develop the extraordinary potential in every member of our school family.”

Spiritual development is embodied in the ethos of our school. It underpins all we value in our daily lives and we aim to promote it across the curriculum.

We appreciate that children and adults will be at different stages of understanding and must be encouraged to respond and participate at their own level thus providing the foundations for self-knowledge, moral conscience, social responsibility and culture awareness.

Spiritual Development

Spiritual development is about finding a unique belief system and creating an inner wellbeing; developing an attitude to think critically and deeply about life’s big questions and developing a curiosity about our place in the world. The spiritual development of pupils is shown by their:

  • Ability to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values
  • Sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them
  • Use of imagination and creativity in their learning
  • Willingness to reflect on their experiences.
