Our Faith

Religious Education

 

We are proud to be a Catholic School and Religious Education is central to the curriculum of our school.

 

Everything in school has the potential to speak of God’s loving care.  Religious Education therefore is not just confined to the RE lesson or to the assembly, but is present in all our experiences at school.  This presence is revealed by what we do, not simply by what we say.

 

The themes explored in the RE lesson reflect this attitude, and are a basis for work in other curricular areas.  Our Religious Education programme is based on a RE scheme of work approved by Lancaster Diocese: ‘The Way the Truth and the Life’.

 

During the liturgical year there are many opportunities for children, staff, parents and parishioners, to come together to pray and reflect, through school assemblies, Masses and other celebrations.  These are important opportunities to celebrate and re-emphasise the Christian values we seek to promote.

 

 

Collective Worship

 

It is the responsibility of every Catholic school to provide for all its members a vital experience of liturgy, worship and prayer which:

 

  • names and celebrates God present and active in authentic human experience
  • is educative
  • is within our Catholic tradition

 

The purpose of these experiences is:

 

  • to raise our mind and heart to God
  • to develop the school as a community of faith
  • to assist learners in developing their relationship with God, creation and the community of the Church
  • to witness to the community and the wider world

 

Collective Worship in our school will be:

 

  • properly planned
  • adequately
  • resourced
  • recorded
  • monitored
  • evaluated

 

in order to ensure that the Collective Worship experienced within the school is a relevant, meaningful and positive contribution to the religious, spiritual and moral development of all members of the community.
