Educational Rationale

Educational Rationale

GenR8 aims to help primary schools to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils through the provision of high quality ‘collective worship’ and other aspects of religious education. Under the framework for school inspection (September 2012) schools are required to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all pupils, enables all pupils to achieve their full educational potential and make progress in their learning, and promotes their good behaviour and safety and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development’.

GenR8 can also support other aspects of religious education; social, emotional and personal education (e.g. PSHE, SEAL); the wider curriculum and pastoral areas of school life.

Through our work we encourage children to:

  • reflect on themselves, others and the world around them
  • think and respond to questions about the meaning and purpose of life
  • explore aspects and traditions of the Christian faith

We offer whole school presentations, as well as initiatives focusing on specific Key Stage or year groups, such as Inspire prayer spaces for Key Stage 2 and ‘It’s Your Move-Plus’ for students in Year 6.

GenR8 operates within a Christian framework, but most of our activities are suitable for children of different faiths, or no faith at all.

For further information about how GenR8 can support schools please get in touch: email Steve Whyatt .
