Religious Education at our school is at the core of the curriculum. It is the systematic study of the teaching of the Church and the mystery of Christ and is a rigorous academic subject in its own right. We follow the Diocese recommended programme of study ‘Come and See’. Each topic is planned, taught, assessed and monitored with the same rigour as other curriculum subjects. In following this programme we facilitate the development of pupils who are religiously literate and engaged and who have the knowledge, understanding and skills to reflect spiritually, think ethically and theologically, and who are aware of the demands of religious commitment in everyday life.

Each topic lasts 4 weeks on average but this is term dependent.
Our teaching is based around Exploring Revealing and Responding to the topic. This includes liturgy prepared by the children and based on the learning within the topic. Each topic is systematically planned to ensure the development of knowledge and skills.
How this is planned systematically to build on knowledge and skills can be seen in the examples below from the theme the Domestic Church.
