Religious Education

"In Faith and Love, We Learn and Grow." 

Intent

In line with our Roman Catholic denomination, we teach the ‘Come And See.’ Syllabus, a Catholic Primary Religious Education programme for Foundation and Key Stages 1 and 2 published in July 2012.

Our intent is that children will:

  • grow in religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles.
  • Understand God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ.
  • have the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through scripture and tradition.

Implementation 

A core subject in the school, Religious Education (RE) is based upon the scheme ‘Come and See RE’.

RE is allocated 2 ½ hours per week; 95 hours per year.*  

Come and See is an easy to use teacher-friendly material 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.

 
 
 

Impact

We assess the impact of our curriculum intent and implementation by:

  • Pupil book study
  • Pupil voice
  • Self, peer or teacher assessment against success criteria in each lesson
  • Moderation with other schools in our MAT.
