Religious Education

We aim to create an environment where children are taught by example to grow as kind, helpful, happy, hardworking and caring people; putting Jesus first, others next and themselves last, showing tolerance among themselves and towards others. As a Catholic school, we seek to develop an ethos whereby the spiritual, moral, social and cultural needs of all within the school community are supported.

Religious Education permeates throughout our whole curriculum; it is not exclusive to timetabled RE lessons. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each child is addressed through all aspects of the curriculum as well as through the various day-to-day situations and opportunities that arise.

Formal RE is delivered through the scheme Learning and Growing as the People of God- provided by the Archdiocese of Birmingham for teaching RE in a Catholic primary school.

The thematic approach enables RE to be taught through other subject areas as links in learning provide the children with opportunities to make connections. There are also numerous opportunities for extended writing in RE and to enhance RE learning through the use of ICT.

In addition to the diocesan strategy, we have dedicated themed weeks such as a "Being Brilliant in Britain" week, which seeks to support the children in learning about other faiths.

Suitable opportunities are provided for all children by matching the challenge of the task to the ability and experience of the child. We recognise that there are pupils of widely different abilities in all classes and we use a variety of methods to ensure suitable learning opportunities for all pupils.
