RE Curriculum


To fulfil our aims and objectives, we use the ‘Come and See’ programme of Religious Education prescribed by the Archdiocese of Liverpool.  The aim of this programme is to explore the religious dimension of questions about life, dignity and purpose within the Catholic tradition.  Links are made with the pupils; own experiences and with universal experience.  Links are also made with the experience of other faith traditions.  The programme is, therefore both ‘objective’ and ‘subjective.’


For all children, the programme will raise questions and provide material for reflecting on their own experience.  It will help them to explore the beliefs, values and way of the Catholic tradition and where appropriate of other faith traditions.  For those from committed families, it will deepen and enrich their understanding and living of their faith, whilst taking into account the needs of those for whom school has been their first and only contact with the church.





Religious education is taught across EYFS, KS1 and KS2 and accounts for 10% of the weekly timetable.  Some lessons last 30 minutes while others last for 1 hour.  During these lessons, the children participate in a range of engaging activities allowing them to ask and respond to a number of theological questions.


Each term sees 3 new ‘themes’ which will be explored.  These fall into the categories of the Church, Sacraments and Christian Living.
