Catholic Education in School

This is a Catholic school and doctrine is taught in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church.  All staff teach discrete RE lessons supported by the 'God Matters' RE Scheme and the Curriculum Directory for Catholic Schools.  Lessons take children through important aspects of Revelation, The Church, Celebration and Life in Christ as outlined in the Broad Areas of Attainment in Religious Education (a statement about Catholic Religious teaching at the Key Stages).

Our School is a worshiping community and our worship takes place at Assemblies in the school hall, and in prayer in the classrooms.  Through our teaching we make links both to RE and PSCHE.  We try to make children aware that they are members of "Gods Family" and encourage them to grow and develop in this way.  We try to help children to respect themselves and others.  The religious nature of the school is at the heart of the school's aims and values.  To celebrate the Catholicity of the school the children worship together in Year Group and School Masses and parents/carers are encouraged to join with us so that we become a whole school community on these occasions.  At certain times, other liturgies are celebrated in school as well as whole school based themes such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter.                                                                      

Parents/carers have the right to withdraw their children from RE lessons and Collective Acts of Worship.
