Loving, Learning and Reaching Out to All
Loving

Our Mission Statement defines all that we hope to achieve as a living Christian community.  We hope that each and every member of our school community feels part of school life.

Learning

Religious Education is held in extremely high regard, it is a core curriculum subject with 10% of teaching time dedicated to its high level delivery. We offer a curriculum based upon core Gospel Values. The syllabus that we follow is approved by the Archdiocese of Liverpool, it is called ‘Come and See’. Further details can be found at  www.comeandseere.co.uk/ . Each term parents receive a newsletter which explains what each class will be studying in RE and any important dates that they need. We also post any information on Class Do Jo, where parents are able to see photographs of work, displays and Collective Worships.

Reaching Out to All

Throughout every aspect of RE we aim to involve all stakeholders in prayer, worship and liturgical celebrations. From Reception through to Y6, parents and carers are invited to assemblies in school, which celebrate the work completed by the children in their Come and See lessons. Further invitations to collective worships and masses are offered throughout the year. We have very fortunate to have the support of two wonderful parish priests, the Right Reverend Monsignor A. Dennick and Father D. Melly.

The Wednesday Word

Each Wednesday the children receive a paper copy of this wonderful newsletter which shares the Sunday Gospel. Parents and carers are encouraged to read this with their child and complete the set activities. This really helps to bring the Sunday Gospel to life. Further details can be found
