As a Catholic school, Jesus Christ remains central to every aspect of school life. All pupils are educated in the beliefs and devotional practices of the Catholic Church. Participation in daily collective act of worship remains at the helm of every day. Mass takes place in school weekly with parents, families and parishioners warmly welcomed.
The Catholic RE scheme ‘Living and Growing as the People of God’ is followed throughout the school. This is supplemented by work on the saints and stories from the Old and New Testaments, Circle time sessions and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Children participate in special liturgies during the school year which are timed to coincide with events in the Church’s calendar.
Our parish priest, Father Kaz , works closely with school staff and families.
Parents and carers are advised that, in desiring a Catholic education for their child, it is expected that all pupils will participate in RE lessons.
All pupils learn about other religions and cultures and are encouraged to show respect and acknowledgement for the beliefs of others through open discussion and shared experiences.
There are many areas of learning you could Explore with your children at home. Below are some lessons you could partake in with your child.
