Our Religious Education curriculum has been specifically tailored to meet the unique context of our school. It is designed to be broad and balanced, providing all pupils with the opportunity to master their learning and deepen the knowledge, making sense and giving purpose as to why we learn about Religion, which will help them change and transform our society, putting their faith into action.
As a Catholic school we are deeply committed to developing children’s faith, with Jesus Christ as our inspiration and St. Patrick as our role model. Our shared vision is made real as we put our mission into practice and our deep commitment to preparing children for modern life in Britain and the wider world, with a clear and moral purpose. We challenge them to become resilient, confident and independent learners. We develop children’s’ knowledge and understanding of other faiths and understanding of other faiths and world religions respecting and appreciating alternative viewpoints. We recognise that the social, moral, spiritual and cultural diversity of our city and our local respective communities are a vital resource to be investigated, to encourage curiosity, tolerance and respect and to inspire pupils to understand how life in modern Britain and the wider world is continually changing around them.
We aim to build high levels of competence in the subject specific skills of:
- Knowledge and understanding
- Engagement and response
- Analysis and evaluation
