As a Roman Catholic school, the teaching of RE is at the core of our curriculum. We follow the RE scheme ‘Come and See,’ in common with the majority of schools within the Diocese of Middlesbrough.
Aims of the RE curriculum:
- To foster a love of God through knowledge and understanding of the Catholic
- To encourage the development of a personal relationship with God.
- To help our children be aware of and respect other faiths.
- To become religiously literate young people
- To develop their thinking, reasoning, questioning and reflective abilities.
- To develop respect for truth and for the views of others.
‘Come and See’ is an extensive programme which covers a range of challenging themes from EYFS to Y6. Each theme is divided into the following sections:
- Explore – the human search for meaning
- Reveal – God’s revelation
- Respond – response in faith
At the end of each theme children reflect on what they have learnt. Links are made with the children’s own experiences and the curriculum is adapted to make it real and meaningful to our children.
Two other world religions are taught following the programme of study in ‘Come and See’. These are Judaism which is taught in the Autumn term and Islam which is taught in the Summer term.

The Governors are required to inform parents of their rights of withdrawal of pupils from Religious Education and worship. Parents are also reminded that our school exists to give a ‘Catholic’ education to its pupils. It is therefore expected that parents be in sympathy with the aims and objectives of the school.
