Religious Education

Religious Education is in accordance with the beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church. The “Come and See” programme is used throughout the school. We believe that children learn most from example and therefore we strive to live out the Gospel values with Christian principles and ideals permeating the whole curriculum.

Children are encouraged to participate in the life of the Church and there are regular School Masses to celebrate important times in the year. Parents, friends, relations and parishioners are welcome to join us.

Once each half-term a Children’s Specially Welcome Mass is held at St Dominic’s, the parish from which the school is derived. These take place on a Sunday and all children and their families are invited to attend.

Class or school acts of collective worship are held every day. Pupils study other world faiths as part of the RE programme and visit places of worship to support their learning.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education lessons. However, by accepting a place at the school, parents understand the school’s Christian foundation and currently no children are withdrawn from lessons.
