Implementation: Planning, Teaching and Learning


What do we teach? What does this look like?


Our curriculum is shaped by our school vision, to STRIVE to be the best we can be for the Glory of God.


We ensure that a minimum of 10% of Curriculum time is allocated for RE teaching across all key stages. The requirements of the RE curriculum are met through the scheme ‘The Way the Truth and The Life’ which in turn meets the requirements of the Religious Education Curriculum Directory set out by the Bishop’s Conference of England & Wales. The scheme provides the basis for teaching the doctrines of the Catholic Church. We ensure that this programme of study is enriched with a variety of activities that include drama, history, geography, art and ICT.


We recognise that the school has a special part to play in supporting parents who strive to develop a lasting faith commitment within their child. Together we guide them to a meaningful relationship with God, with Jesus, the Word of God, and with the Holy Spirit, who guides our every action.


In school, we do this in three main ways;

  • by creating an atmosphere which pervades the whole life of the school, where the unique value of each person is recognised and respected. The most powerful agent in this process is the example of Christian behaviour and attitudes shown by all members of staff through their actions and words, and in the relationships they foster.
  • by creating a structured liturgy appropriate to the age and ability of the children. In partnership with our parish priest, opportunities are created for prayer and worship closely matching the liturgical calendar. School Masses, assemblies and services are all important elements in our liturgy.
  • by delivering a planned programme of Religious Education.


The children explore the religious dimensions of questions about life, dignity and purpose within the Catholic tradition. Links are made with the pupils’ own experiences and with the other faith traditions.


We proudly proclaim our faith and invite all to join us on our journey, but we welcome children and families of other faiths to our community, and we learn about other faiths and cultures.

Years 1- 6 use the RE level descriptors from the Bishops’ conference to assess the attainment of the children and their progress is tracked on a termly basis. Teachers also highlight ‘statements’ which reflect the children’s learning across a unit on the front cover. The Foundation Stage use the assessment profile to assess. Children are assessed on their individual, group and oral work through each topic. This enables both class teachers and the subject leader to monitor coverage and identify progress made throughout the pupils’ time at school.
