Religious Education

Religious Education


Come and See is the Religious Education (RE) programme recommended by the Bishops of England and Wales and provides the basis for RE lessons throughout the school. This curriculum was launched in September 2012. It gives children a lively and engaging curriculum where they are able to learn through a variety of experiences and activities.
Besides the formal RE syllabus, every opportunity is taken to ensure the message of the Gospel is in all the work of the school. Our
Christian Values Curriculum gives our children a clear understanding of the Christian values we hope they will adopt in their everyday life.


Religious Education plays a central and vital part in the life of faith in our Catholic school. It is the foundation for all learning and as such is the core subject in our school. We believe firmly that RE permeates every aspect of our curriculum, as, by helping children to understand more fully the world around them, they will come to a deeper understanding of God and of their fellow human beings. This vision shapes the daily life of our school as a community.

To read more about the Come and See curriculum and how it is delivered, read the documents below:

Although you are entitled to withdraw your child from religious education and worship, we encourage all children to participate in RE lessons, assemblies and daily acts of worship.

We firmly believe we are a school community and would hope all children would want to participate in the life of the school. If arrangements were required this could be discussed with the Headteacher.
