Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education

Outdoor Prayer Space

As part of their outdoor education sessions, our Year 5 pupils organised and ran a ‚ÄėPrayer Space‚Äô in the woodland area, giving everyone a chance to reflect on some of the bigger questions of life, that we don‚Äôt always have time to think about.¬† The children were very well behaved and the Year 5 were fantastic showing all the other year groups what to do.

Crocus Blessing

Pupils from St Mary’s School Council planted crocus bulbs in the autumn, kindly donated by the local Rotary Club, as a way of raising awareness of the countries around the world where polio still exists.¬† As the bulbs started to come into flower, representatives from the local Rotary Club and the School Councillors¬† attended a blessing service at the Abbey, conducted by Father Francis Straw, the parish priest.


Pupils from Burrator Class were invited by the Abbey Education Department to take part in a range of activities related to religion and ethics.  All of the activities were designed to give time for people to think carefully about themselves and the world around them.

Chinese New Year

Meldon pupils have enjoyed learning about Chinese culture and celebrate the Chinese New Year.

School Council Fundraiser for Cancer Research

The School Council decided upon Cancer Research as one of its chosen charities, following a request from one of the pupils in school.  One initiative was to organise an obstacle course with sports coach Jordan, which was completed by all of the pupils in school.  Everyone was asked to donate £1 to take part.  From all of the fund raising events held so far this year, nearly £200 has been raised for Cancer Research.
