Religious Education

As a Catholic school, Religious Education is one of our core subjects alongside English and Maths. It is taught for approximately 2.5 hours per week. We use the Come and See programme in school, which is a Catholic Primary Religious Education programme for Foundation and Key Stages 1 and 2 published in July 2012. Please click here to find out more about Come and See.

It takes approximately four weeks to complete each unit and during this time, children will hear scripture from the Bible, complete various tasks, and share in a liturgy linked to the topic. Although the programme is centred around the Catholic faith, the children will also have the opportunity to learn about Judaism during the Autumn term and one other religion (either Islam or Sikhism) in the Summer term.

Here are some great website links that may support you or your child with their understanding of religious education. Some provide helpful support in bible passages and others offer lovely liturgies on key themes.
