At St Paul’s Religious Education is a core subject which has dedicated 10% teaching time as directed in the Religious Education Curriculum Directory, 2012.
RE is taught as a distinct subject but much of the learning is woven throughout the whole school curriculum.
Using The Way, The Truth and The Life scheme of work, together with additional creative and stimulating activities, we teach the children about Gospel Values, the Catholic faith and traditions and their role in society. We are proud that this learning is evident in their interactions with others and their care for other people and God’s creation.
As part of the curriculum the children also study a range of faiths - developing a deeper knowledge of the beliefs, symbols and traditions of Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism.
The Religious Education curriculum is mapped to the RECD, 2012.
“In his goodness and wisdom God chose to reveal himself and to make known to us the hidden purpose of his will b by which through Christ, the Word made flesh, man might in the Holy Spirit have access to the Father and come to share in the divine nature.” (Dei Verbum 2)
Please be aware that a new RECD is in draft format in 2022
