Education is central to the mission of the Catholic Church. Catholic education endeavours to make the cut reperson of Jesus Christ known and loved, and to place Him and the teachings of the Catholic Church at the centre of our learning environment. Within Catholic schools, each individual is seen as made in God’s image and loved by Him. All students are valued and respected as individuals so that they may be helped to fulfil their unique role in creation. Catholic education aims to offer young people the experience of life in a community founded on the Christian virtues, this is particularly true of religious education. Through religious education our learners are given the opportunity to develop skills which will prepare them to serve as witnesses to moral and spiritual values in the wider world.

At Key Stage 3 we follow “People of God, Called to Serve” This is a nationally developed framework which is deliberately mapped against the Religious Education Curriculum Directory for Catholic Schools and Colleges in England and Wales [2012] of the Bishops’ Department of Catholic Education and Formation. As a department we have adopted this framework as the basis of our learning for all our learners in Key Stage 3.

At Key Stage 4 we are directed to follow the WJEC Religious Studies (Catholic Theology and Judaism). This specification covers both religious and philosophical issues, as well as exploring life issues which include relationships, life and death, good and evil and human rights.
