Vocation and Mission

Our children are encouraged to lead the school in acts of charity and mission that supports others.

The Chaplaincy Team

The chaplaincy team spend one lunchtime per week reading bible stories, discussing the message and engaging in fun activities associated with the story. This takes place in the Rainbow room. This room is also available during other lunchtimes for prayer and quiet reflection if the children wish.

Statements To Live By

Each week, one of the statements to live by is distributed to each class at the end of Monday worship. They are then discussed within each class and annotated with all the ways in which the children plan to live out those statements in their daily life.

Please see our e-newsletter for our liturgical celebrations and our weekly statements to live by!

The Bible is the most important book we have. Our faith is rooted in Sacred Scripture.

Scripture inspires learning, culture, art, music and literature. With a renewed love of Scripture comes the opportunity and desire to share it with others.

With its 73 books, it offers an incredibly detailed picture of the story of the Creator and His creation. We can literally hear the word of the living God spring from its pages. So picking a weekly Bible verse is not as easy as you might think!

What is Come and See?

A Catholic Primary Religious Education programme for Foundation and Key Stages 1 and 2 published in July 2012.

This easy to use teacher-friendly material has been written by a group of experienced diocesan advisors.

It follows on from successful trialling in schools in England and Wales and is based on the theological foundations of the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Catechism and the revised RE Curriculum Directory and includes the Catholic attainment levels.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church addresses the search for meaning in life. God’s initiative in Revelation who comes to meet us and our response of faith. (cf. CCC26) This pattern guides the structure of the programme and informs the process of each topic, opened up through; Explore, Reveal and Respond.
