The PHASE team aims to provide inspiration and challenge for the spiritual side of young lives. We currently work mainly in local secondary schools to support their provision of spiritual development within the curriculum and the wider school community.
Every young person, whether from a faith background or not, can have a spiritual dimension to their life. We aim to provide a safe and inspiring context to enable young people to explore this crucial element of their personal development. Government tasks our schools to foster every pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
The PHASE team offers a Christian perspective on spiritual development, working sensitively and appropriately with young people from all faiths and backgrounds
The aim is to contribute towards three outcomes:
Develop spiritual literacy: helping young people begin to give voice to their spiritual questions, beliefs and ideas.
Understand spiritual life: giving young people vivid practical examples of spirituality in practice and encouraging them to engage with these using their critical thinking skills.
Explore Christian spirituality: giving young people a safe and non-judgmental space to explore spiritual belief and practice from the Christian tradition.
We offer a wide variety of inputs within the curriculum, including RE theme days, school assemblies and contributing to RE lessons. We also develop wider on site school projects within school buildings to provide opportunities and space for students to reflect and explore spiritual themes. We support and oversee Christian Union groups within the schools for young people who would like to know more about the Christian tradition.
