At St Michael and St John ‘s School, we deliver an RE curriculum that links the RE themes of; Revelation, Church, Celebration, Life in Christ and the Bible as laid out by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales across the wider curriculum to give greater depth and meaning.
As a school we will promote an integrated view of RE within the curriculum. Wherever possible the spiritual life of the children will be enriched by art, music, drama, written work, literature and worship. We are fortunate to be next door to our church and have strong links with church and parish.
Our children also learn about other faiths within a ‘Faith Week’ in the Spring Term and may visit other places of worship as part of their understanding of the diverse cultures and faiths within society.
The RE themes mentioned above are covered in the RE scheme Come and See. There are nine topics during the year and are organised so each year groups will cover the same topic over a four week period at their own level. We are continuing to build a supply of recommended teacher’s books and resources.
The RE themes will be portrayed throughout the school during class liturgies and whole school and parent assemblies.
