RE Curriculum Statement

INTENT

Our aim is to evangelise the Catholic faith, whilst reflecting the overall aims, values, and philosophy of our school.  Religious Education develops and inspires our children to be tolerant, independent and positive citizens, strong in faith with a deep and confident appreciation of the Catholic Church. Religious Education is central to our mission and our ultimate goal is for each individual to know God better.

IMPLEMENTATION

Religious Education is taught using the ‘Come and See’ programme. We devote 2.5 hours of RE teaching each week. Lessons use scripture and Gospel values to encourage children to explore their own faith and create opportunities to question, discuss and debate religious content. Each class plan and prepare collective worship and we gather together several times a week for whole school collective worship.
