Our RE Curriculum
The first key reason why Catholic schools are established, is to be part of the Church’s mission in education, to place Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church at the centre of people’s lives.
“Education is integral to the mission of the Church to proclaim the Good News. First and foremost every Catholic educational institution is a place to encounter the living God who in Jesus Christ reveals his transforming love and truth.” This evangelising mission is exercised through the diverse interaction of Catholic schools with their local parishes, families, societies and cultures they serve. To put Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church at the centre of the educational enterprise is the key purpose of Catholic schools. In a Catholic school, the Church seeks to build the foundation our spiritual development, our learning and teaching, the formation of culture and our society in Christ.
(Christ at the Centre, Bishop Marcus Stock)
To fulfil our aims and objectives we use `The Way, the Truth, the Life' programme.
The aim of the programme is to explore the religious dimension of questions about life and dignity and purpose within the Catholic tradition.
Links are made with the pupils' own experience and with universal experience.
As part of our RE curriculum, we also learn about other faiths.
Throughout the year, a different faith will be taught for 1 week, three times a year. During these weeks, a whole week’s RE teaching time will be spent studying another World Faith (including Judaism, Hinduism and Islam). This will happen at 3 points throughout the year.
