Religious Education



At St. Joseph’s we are committed to the Catholic Faith, recognising and valuing every individual as special and unique in the image and likeness of God.


R.E. respects and promotes each child’s innate capacity for awe, reverence, spirituality and wonder. Our R.E. curriculum fundamentally teaches our children about God’s love; they learn about their Christian responsibilities, 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. Through R.E. our children learn about their unique place within the home, school and parish community.


The aims of religious education in St Joseph's Catholic Primary School include the following:

  • To create a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment.
  • To deepen knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith through prayer and the Gospels.
  • Helping to foster pupil’s awareness that our Christian faith is not just a subject for learning, but a complete way of life.
  • To promote the spiritual and moral development of the children.
  • To lead the children to a living and active faith by helping them to become aware of God’s presence in their lives, to listen to Him and to respond to His invitation to enter into a personal relationship with Him through prayer.
  • To give the children the experience of a Christian caring and inclusive community where all members are valued.
  • To involve parents/carers in the spiritual development of their children.


As well as learning about Catholicism, we believe it is important for our children to learn about other World Faiths as these also make up part of our immediate community. Throughout the year, we have 5 additional 'R.E. Days', each one focusing on a different World Faith - these include Sikhism, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam & Buddhism.


The below overview shows our current Religious Education curriculum that is based on the 'The Way, The Truth, The Life' scheme of work. This is followed throughout the whole school and covers an extensive range of theological studies.
