Religious Education - Our Curriculum

The main resource for classroom teaching of RE is “Learning and Growing as the People of God”, which provides clear guidelines on how to communicate the doctrine outlined in the text. It suggests activities for such practices as prayer and penitential services, and enables the teacher to approach the main feasts of the Church with meaning and joy.

The RE curriculum also supports the parish programmes of preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. However, the published scheme is designed for use in single-age classes, the school has therefore put in place a two year cycle of work to ensure that the scheme fits the school’s system of organisation. This two year cycle integrates the work in the classroom with assemblies and services, ensuring that all the work in RE is complementary.

The teaching programme helps pupils to explore the beliefs, values and way of life of the Catholic tradition and where appropriate, of other faith traditions.
