Religious Education

So Jesus said, “Well, then, pay to the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor, and pay to God what belongs to God.” And they were amazed at Jesus. Mark 12:17

Here at Holy Family & St Michael’s, we deliver our RE lessons with the support of the Diocesan recommended scheme, The Way, The Truth and The Life. This scheme teaches and supports the children with the principles of the Catholic faith. It offers some interactive activities to support the learning in school, which we encourage you to view with your child.

Intent

  • At the heart of Catholic education lies the Christian vision of the human person. This vision is expressed and explored in religious education. Therefore, we believe that religious education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of the entire educational process.
  • We believe Religious Education is, then, the core subject in a Catholic school.
  • Religious education contributes to evangelisation and catechesis but its specific contribution to the Catholic Life of the school is primarily educational and so Religious Education will be planned, taught, assessed and monitored with the same rigour as other curriculum subjects.
  • We understand Religious Education to be the systematic study of the mystery of God and of Jesus Christ, of the Church, and of the central beliefs which Catholics hold.

Implementation

The children across school will learn about differing aspects of our Faith and other peoples beliefs, linked to the following areas of learning:
