Religious Education

Our religious education aims to equip our children to become religiously literate, to understand our Catholic faith and to think critically.


We follow the ‘Come and See’ religious education programme, as recommended by our Brentwood Diocese.  It is taught through themes that are structured for children to learn by exploring, revealing and responding. 


Through reflecting on a ‘big question’ for each theme, children aim to discover their response to each question. 


Our RE teaching focuses on three main skills:

-learning about religion (AT1);

-learning from religion (AT2);

-analysing and evaluating (AT3).


We want our children to witness what it means to live out our faith every day as they belong to our school, their families and our parish community.  We follow Jesus’ social and moral teaching to help us become responsible global neighbours and how this affects the way we treat each other.
