Prayer & Reflection

At Totley All Saints, we know the value of taking time to pause & de-stress & believe that it contributes significantly to our children’s well being & development.

 

poppiesAs a result, we try to offer many opportunities  for our children  to take time out & reflect on their feelings, behaviour & our place in the world.

 

We are extremely fortunate to have an amazing site in which to do this & have several quiet areas outside that children can enjoy peace & quiet with friends or alone. Our substantial green space, woodland workshop & nature reserve all provide areas to refresh as well as ponder on God’s created world.

 

Within school also, we have special prayer / reflection areas in each classroom. This is an ideal space for children to take the opportunity to pray, think, pause, reflect or just simply ‘chill’. Sometimes children may use an object to help them do this, e.g. a palm cross, a teddy, a smooth pebble, etc. Bibles plus prayer prompt cards are also available for children to read if they wish. The areas also have cushions and a sealed box where worries/ thoughts/prayers /questions can be posted. No child is ever forced, but the areas are free to use entirely as a child wishes.

A group of parents also meet in the staff room every Monday morning at 8.50am for about 30 minutes  to pray for the school. We would love more parents to join us in praying, however we are aware that many of you are busy on a Monday morning. Therefore, we have set up a WhatsApp group for those that can’t make it but would like to pray for the school. If you would like to join the group, then please leave your name and mobile number in a envelope marked ‘Parent Prayer Group’ at the office, and then someone will be in touch. If you are able to join us on a Monday morning, then we would love to see you whenever you can make it. We normally wait in the entrance hall at 8.50 before heading up to the staff room. Thank you!
