Schools provide the perfect places to create reflective spaces: in the classroom, in the corridor or in the outdoor environment. A place may be chosen because it is quiet and ‘tucked away’ or because it is frequently passed by children.

What is a reflective space?

A reflective space is soothing and tranquil retreat where children can ‘be still’ and calmly focus their mind in thought, prayer or meditation. It is a place that can provide opportunities for children to explore their spirituality, to ponder ‘big’ questions and express feelings such as gratitude and forgiveness.

What should a reflective space look like?

A reflective space should ideally have a spiritual theme to promote feelings of calm and peacefulness. This theme may depend on your school setting, ethos and ‘where’ in your school the reflective space is created.
