Religious Education

Religious Education is taught using the Catholic Primary RE Programme, Come and See. This Programme is used across school, from Foundation to the end of Key Stage 2.

The programme of study, written by a group of experienced Diocesan Advisors, contains child-friendly material, which allows children to explore the teachings of the Catholic church through the use of age appropriate resources and activities.

Each year group has their own list of focus topics to consider throughout the academic year (see Intent below). Topics studied will coincide with the church calendar; however, the depth in which the topic is explored is dependent upon the respective age of the child. For example, during Lent, whilst all children will learn about the plight of Christ, our Early Years children will consider the importance of growing and new life. Meanwhile, Key Stage 1 children explore the effect of change and opportunities, with Key Stage 2 children considering the importance of self-discipline, sacrifice, death and new life.

At the heart of the Programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition.
