As a catholic school, religious education is at the heart of our school life.
The children follow “God Matters”, the Portsmouth Diocesan religious education programme, which forms the basis of the school’s catholic religious education curriculum. We deliver the content of this programme over a two year cycle, split into Year A and Year B. Where units are only taught in one year, both year group’s objectives are covered. For example, in Year A, the Year 1 and 2 children will be taught all the Year 1 and 2 objectives.
In Year A, the children learn about Creation, Pentecost, Islam and Sikhism. In Year B the children learn about Prayers, Saints and Feasts, Sacraments, Hinduism and Judaism. In both years, they learn about the Mission Statement, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter.
