St John The Baptist Church of England Primary School

Loving Learning, Building Community, Growing in Faith


Prayer and thought spaces

Reflective areas, that include opportunity for prayer, are set up around the school: one in the entrance hall and then others as space allows. This allows pupils time to pause in their busy days and reflect on a given theme. 

Each classroom in the school has a prayer or reflection area which contains various resources appropriate to the age of the child. Often, the children have contributed their individual ideas to these areas. They are changed and adapted during the year and give the children the opportunity for a quiet time to ponder, reflect or pray.
