It is our mission to announce the joy of the Gospel by making Christ known today.

 

INTENT/What we aim to do through our RE Curriculum

As a Catholic School, Religious Education lies at the heart of our curriculum.

Religious education in Catholic schools aims to promote:

  • knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith and life in Christ;
  • knowledge and understanding of the response of faith to questions about human life, its origin and purpose;
  • the skills required to engage in examination of and reflection upon religious belief and practice, including awareness of and respect for the beliefs and practices of other faith groups and religious communities.

 

IMPLEMENTATION/How we teach RE

Our RE Curriculum is defined by the Archdiocese of Birmingham and is entitled 'Learning and Growing as People of God'.

Adaptations are made to the curriculum so that it is accessible to all and so that no child is disadvantaged by Special Educational Needs or Disaibility.

Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas) Tuesday 2 February: On this day (which falls 40 days after Christmas day and marks the ends of the Christmas Season in the Orthodox Church), we remember Simeon’s joy at seeing the Messiah before him and his proclamation that Jesus is ‘the light for all nations’. It’s on this day that the Church blesses all the candles and we can mark this by placing a new candle on our altars in class or at home.
