The Christian ethos underpins the whole of our Curriculum. The Christian way of life operates at every level in the school. The Governors and staff are committed to the principles of the school as a caring Catholic community where individual responsibility is balanced with social justice. How successfully we achieve this can be seen in our Denominational Inspection Report.
The school follows the 'God Matters' scheme of work for Religious Education. Newsletters for parents and carers are available to support the units and to give parents and carers ways to support children's education in RE. Links to these can be found at the bottom of this page.
Besides regular periods of Religious Education, children are given practical experience of Christian living and of community worship through Class and School worship. Parents and parishioners are invited to attend School Masses during the term. Assemblies are organised to include a KS1 (Infant) Worship Assembly, a KS2 (Junior) Worship Assembly, a class Worship Assembly and a whole school Worship Assembly once a week. The celebration of the children's achievements takes place during special Worship Assemblies.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from religious education and from Collective worship. Alternative provision is arranged with the parents.
The R.E. Co-ordinator reports termly to the Board of Governors on developments in R.E. and the spiritual life of our school.
