Spiritual is more than R.E.: Understanding the First ‘S’ of SMSC

Spirituality is as much an awareness of ourselves as it is an awareness of anything beyond ourselves. So how do we, in a secular age, encourage pupils to engage with and understand their ‘spirit’ - whether or not they have a faith-based ‘spiritual’ side? What inspires you? Where do you feel most at peace?
