Religious Education

Religious Education is the core subject which is central to the life of our Catholic school. Our Religious Education curriculum is delivered through the Diocesan scheme of work called Come and See.


Come and See offers the opportunity to search, to explore, to discover, and to respond; this is part of what it is to be human.


Children are invited to ‘Come and See’ the wonder of all that is within them and beyond them


God offers the invitation to ‘Come and See’


Teachers facilitate the opportunity for children to ‘Come and See’


The programme is taught through 3 main areas; Church, Sacrament and Christian Living. In these areas children will be taught about their family, their local community, the sacraments such as baptism and marriage as well as key events in the Christian Church such as Advent, Easter and Pentecost.


Within each topic the children will follow 3 stages: Explore (discuss their initial responses), Reveal (learn, discuss and understand the topic) and Respond (reflect on and celebrate their learning).


There are specific weeks during the year which allow the children to learn about other world faiths such as Islam and Judaism.  These weeks give our children the opportunity to explore various aspects of faiths other than their own.  The curriculum maps below outline the learning opportunities offered to the children in each year group across school.
