Other Faiths Curriculum Overview 2023-2024

This is a Catholic school which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ.

We promote these values by our words and deeds, and Catholic doctrine and practice therefore permeates every aspect of the 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 (Gen 1: 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 - 26.3 92) and the foundation of the entire educational process.

We follow 'The Way, The Truth The Life' scheme of work from EYFS to Y6 and use many other resources and stimuli linked to our lives today,  to engage and inspire the children's learning in RE.
