Curriculum Intent for Religious Education

In this subject, the children will have the opportunity to deepen knowledge and understanding of the Catholic Faith. We regard religious Education as more than a curriculum subject. It is something that guides every area of our school. As a Catholic school, we aim to educate the whole child and our ethos is inseparable from the curriculum. Children will have the opportunity to learn about God’s love and discover their Christian responsibilities and how they should pray and care for others. They learn to examine how to react to different emotions following the example that God and Jesus set for us.
They will be supported and challenged to know more and remember more enabling them to reach the end points for each key stage. This will equip them to succeed in education and in adult life, and to make a positive contribution to society for the common good.

Please look at the parents’ letters for each term to see when the topics will be starting as well as suggestions for activities to do at home.
