Religious Education

Statement of Intent

At St Joseph’s school, we are committed to the Catholic faith and see RE as the core of the core curriculum. We recognise and value every individual’s right to a curriculum that engages, inspires and challenges all pupils, encouraging them to reach their true potential. This is evidenced in our motto: We are children of God: we achieve, believe and care. Our intent is to equip children with the knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions, explore beliefs, values and traditions in the Catholic and other faiths. Our religious education is coherently planned and sequenced using the Diocesan ‘Come and See’ programme. The children are taught about God’s love; they learn about their Christian responsibilities; children are provided with experiences of church, Catholic and Christian traditions, as well as being taught to be respectful and understanding of people and traditions from other faith backgrounds.
