Religious Education

At. St. Mary’s we follow ‘The way, the Truth and the Life’ programme of study as the basis for our Religious Education teaching. It begins in Lower Early years and goes through to Year 6. It is broken into 6 units across the year. The units are developmental, building on previous knowledge and experience and taking into account of the children’s age and understanding. This programme aims to encourage children’s awareness of the presence of God and to help them respond to that presence. The scheme helps to enable children learn about the Catholic faith and respond to its invitation with growing faith and love.

Our planning meets the requirements of the Religious Education Curriculum Directory - guidance for the RE classroom curriculum in Catholic schools.
