Supporting your child’s Spiritual Development

As a Catholic school we acknowledge how important it is for our pupils to recognise God’s loving presence in their daily lives.  Our faith is at the centre of all our work at Robert Sutton; every day starts with prayers during staff briefing, assemblies and registration for pupils led by the form tutors and pupils.   We cherish our Catholic belief and identity and at the same time seek to ensure that all pupils have an understanding of the diverse religious cultures in Britain today.

How you can support your child in growing closer to God

In its simplest form, prayer is defined as “talking to God.” It is a personal time of opening our hearts to our Heavenly Father and bringing everything in our hearts to Him. Through the Apostle Paul, God asked us to pray. Prayer can be a powerful force for change in our lives. 

Communication is the foundation for success in any relationship. When we communicate openly and freely with each other, we learn to know each other as individuals. This principle also applies to our relationship with God. By talking to God, we can learn more about who He is and what plan He has for us. To support your child’s prayer life we are sharing with you a Parental guide – ‘I pray with my children’.
