Religious Education



Pupils are taught to value themselves, and others, and to understand that they all are made in the image and likeness of God. Children are reflective and aware of their actions on others because they are able to understand and apply the teachings of the gospel.  

'Standards in Religious Education are high. All groups of pupils make good progress and achieve well. A wide range of cross-curricular activities enrich the curriculum and help to inspire and motivate pupils. Pupils enjoy Religious Education and appreciate its relevance to their own lives. Pupils’ work is beautifully presented, indicating pride in their work.' (Section 48 RE Inspection, 2019)


The school uses ‘The Way, the Truth and the Life’ as their primary RE scheme. The scheme, however, acts only as a starting point to our teaching of RE and teachers  take the learning much deeper to allow for a greater level of learning and understanding. We focus on helping the children to think theologically, ethically and spiritually. The teaching of other faiths is also an important aspect of our RE curriculum.

Our RE teaching encourages our children to discover, to analyse and to investigate scripture allowing them to understand the messages and to make links with other scripture as well as their own lives. 

Catholic Social Teaching is an integral part of our religious education teaching.
