Religious Education

The Spiritual Life of our School

In the life of faith of Our Lady’s Catholic School, Religious Education plays a central and vital part. At the heart of Catholic education lies the Christian vision of the human person. This vision is expressed and explored in Religious Education. Therefore Religious Education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of the entire educational process.

We are all God's children and there is no one else like us. We are unique. We are all different and we have the right to feel safe all of the time.

Collective Worship is a key aspect of life in school they take different forms which include:

  • Whole school
  • Key Stages
  • Year groups
  • Classes

Masses are attended by all children at different times throughout the year:

Our Religious Education Curriculum - Come and See

A Catholic Primary Religious Education programme for Foundation and Key Stages 1 and 2 published in July 2012.

This easy to use teacher-friendly material has been written by a group of experienced diocesan advisors.

It follows on from successful trialling in schools in England and Wales and is based on the theological foundations of the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Catechism and the revised RE Curriculum Directory and includes the Catholic attainment levels.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church addresses the search for meaning in life. God’s initiative in Revelation who comes to meet us and our response of faith. (cf. CCC26) This pattern guides the structure of the programme and informs the process of each topic, opened up through; Explore, Reveal and Respond.
