We serve diverse populations of pupils and within this context the aims of Religious Education are:
Children of other faiths and none are warmly welcomed and nurtured as part of our school learning community. Attendance and respect at acts of collective worship is expected of all members of the school community. It supports the school’s ethos in action.
We believe that learning about other faiths and cultures is essential for children to have a better understanding of their own faith and culture. It is also fundamental to encouraging tolerance and respect, vital British values to which St Patrick’s adheres in its teaching and actions.
The Come and See programme of Religious Education integrates the teaching of other faiths, and allows for learning with progression across the year groups. All children study different aspects of other religions each year ensuring a good accumulative knowledge by the time they leave primary school. Teachers carefully plan into the curriculum regular visits to places of worship of other faiths.
Tuesday Mass at St. Patrick’s Church starts at 9.30 am. Readings will be done by the older class while the younger class is responsible for bidding prayers. KS1 may need to ask some parents to accompany them.
