Randalph’s Spiritual Quest and Search for Meaning Series is a Welsh Government commissioned resource to support Religion, Values and Ethics for 8- to 11-year-old learners within the Humanities’ Area of the Curriculum for Wales.
The pedagogical approach illustrated in this series aims to inspire teachers to be creative and confident when developing meaningful and challenging Religion, Values and Ethics in the school curriculum. Devised for the learning context in Wales (in which teachers and schools are given greater autonomy in curriculum organisation and selection of content) the open, enquiry-based approach of Randalph’s Spiritual Quest and Search for Meaning makes the series relevant to Religion, Values and Ethics across schools in Wales, as well as England and further afield.
The St Mary’s Centre, Wales, is actively engaged in academic research concerning young people, religion and education, and this expertise informs practice in all our curriculum development projects, including Randalph’s Spiritual Quest and Search for Meaning Series. The St Giles’ Centre, Wrexham, has made a valuable contribution to the development of this series.
