Religious Education and Our Faith

Religious Education is central to the life of the school. In our Section 48 RE Inspection in March 2018 the school was graded 'Outstanding'.

We follow the National Programme “The Way, The Truth and The Life” which covers nine topics each year. The programme is used from Reception to Year 6. 
Each day collective worship takes place in class with prayers and time for reflection. Children are invited through the Parishes to receive the Sacraments of Forgiveness and Holy Communion in Year 3. The children are supported in school through ongoing work in the RE programme.
The whole school community meets for assembly every Monday. Department assemblies also take place weekly.

Juniors have class Masses to which families are invited. There are opportunities planned for the to children attend Mass in the parish churches.
Our Parish Priests Father William, Father Desmond and Father Shaw come to school regularly to talk to the children, share in our assemblies, lead services and celebrate Mass. They provide the children with opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Forgiveness during Lent. Throughout the year our school family joins together to celebrate Mass.

Mini Vinnies

Mini Vinnies is a programme designed for groups of primary school students who are interested in social justice. Mini Vinnies students get together within their school to help those in need within their school, local or international community. Mini Vinnies introduces children to social justice issues, The St Vincent de Paul Society and to living faith through action. The group is supported by a teacher or parent within the school, by the local St Vincent de Paul parish conference and by St Vincent de Paul staff.

Our Mini Vinnies group is led by Mrs Oates and Mrs May.
