This is a Catholic school that seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ. We promote these values by our words and deeds, and therefore Catholic doctrine and practice permeate every aspect of our school’s activity. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Gen1:27). Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to discern their vocation and to be well equipped to follow it as active citizens in service to the world. Catholic Religious Education is the “core of the core curriculum” (Pope St John Paul II) and the foundation of the entire educational process. We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong pastoral support. We incorporate democratic principles, value the rule of law, support individual liberty and foster a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.
When planning RE lessons we use the ‘Come and See’ Religious Education scheme of work alongside the Diocese of Westminster Agreed Understandings.
10% of curriculum time is devoted to the teaching of Religious Education, with each year group following three topics per term. Two weeks in the year are dedicated to the study of other faiths.
The faith experience of all children is supported by beginning with their real life experiences, leading them to reflect upon and consider the Christian message in all its richness.
