Religious education has a statutory position in Scottish education in schools.

Learning Teaching Scotland says “Religious and moral education has strong associations with learning for citizenship, enterprise, international education, creativity and sustainable development.

Values such as justice, wisdom, compassion and integrity are constantly being enacted through all aspects of the life of the school as a community. They can be further developed through exploration and discussion in religious and moral education.”

Prayer Spaces make a significant contribution to the successful delivery of both the Religious & Moral Education and the Health & Wellbeing experiences and outcomes.

The resources, being largely experiential, provide an ideal learning environment in which to develop “the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes which they (young people) need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.”  (LTS)
