What is Religious Education?

  • Religious education is about engaging with the deepest questions of life and finding reasons for the hope that is within them.

  • It is about the Christian vision of the human person.

  • It is the core subject which is central to the life of our Catholic school.

  • It is the systematic study:

  • of the mystery of God, as discovered through the Bible and particularly through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ,

  • the teachings of the Church,

  • the lives of the saints,

  • the relationship between faith and life.

We follow the Come and See programme which provides:

  • Succinct learning objectives

  • Key content

  • Appropriate methodologies

  • Rigour

  • Rich resources

  • Identifiable outcomes

  • Accurate assessment

Religious Education is taught discretely but children will be offered opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills across the curriculum.
