Our Catholic Life Learning and growing together inspired by the love of Jesus
As a Catholic School the Religious Education we provide conforms to the doctrines of the Catholic Church. Religious Education is taught according to the syllabus approved by the Archdiocese of Liverpool, ‘COME and SEE’.
We justify our existence as a Catholic School by offering the children a curriculum based on good education practice in an environment based on Gospel values.
Throughout all aspects of Religious education we aim to involve the children in active participation in prayer, worship and liturgical celebrations.
The periods of collective worship help us to underline our school aims and allow us to celebrate the place of Christ in our school life. The school has no specific arrangements (at this time) for the withdrawal of pupils from religious teaching or worship.
The School has an agreed policy for Education in Personal Relationships which contains arrangements for teaching Sex Education. Children’s sex education is based on Christian principles and is related to the stage of their development as they move through the School. We use the resource Journey in Love to help us prepare the children for the changes that occur as they grow and develop.
The children receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion in Year 4. Within the programme of sacramental preparation emphasis is placed on the shared responsibility between home, school and Parish.
