Religious Education stands as a cornerstone within our curriculum. Each week, we develop and explore our pupil's spirituality through the 'Come and See' programme. We see the teaching of RE as an immersive journey where we take every opportunity to engage our pupils and encourage creativity. Through a range of activities, from whole-class discussions to drama, from art projects to written pieces, we aim to instill within our children a deep understanding of their faith.


'Come and See' guides our teachers and pupils through the scriptures and liturgical practices of the Catholic Church. We nurture the spiritual and moral growth of our pupils in accordance with the values of the Catholic church.


We recognise the rich diversity within our school community and embrace the opportunity to explore the links between Catholicism and other world faiths. Our children explore and appreciate other world religions such as Judaism and Islam. In doing so, we cultivate a culture of mutual understanding and respect.


Weekly assemblies and collective worships are integral to our practice. As a school we attend masses frequently, both at school and at Holy Rood Church. These masses, acts of worship and celebrations of the word provide moments of reflection to further develop our individual faith. 

Y2 loved acting out how they could show each other kindness!


These children really enjoyed using scripture to create their own pieces of drama.


Other Faiths

This term all of our pupils have been learning about Judaism as part of our Multi Faith unit. We have spent 3 weeks learning lots of interesting things about different aspects of the Jewish faith.



The children in FS2 have been learning about the festival of Hanukkah. They listened to the story of the oil lamp and the temple and found out why this holiday is celebrated. They looked closely at a menorah and then the children chose how they wanted to represent their own menorah. They had some brilliant ideas. FS2 also made Potato Latkes to celebrate Hanukkah. They were delicious!

Year 1

Year 1 have been learning about traditional Jewish stories of Abraham and of Moses. We have painted beautiful star filled skies to remind us of the promise God made to Abraham and Sarah. We have also learned about the story of Moses and how God kept him safe from danger on the Nile river, the children wrote their own prayers in the role of Moses’ mother asking God to keep him safe on his journey.

Year 2

Year 2 have been learning about Shabbat. They have been exploring all the artefacts that families use during Shabbat and have designed their own Challah cover.

Year 3

The children have explored a synagogue, what can be found inside, the beliefs and ten commandments that Jew's may follow, and we have looked at a Rabbi and how the synagogue is a community centre for people. Children also drew religious drawings of items found in the synagogue.

Year 4

Year 4 have learnt about the significance of the Torah is and read some of the stories that are significant, including The Call of Moses. They looked at how this story shows that God cares for and loves his people. We also looked at what language the Torah is written in and practiced some writing in Hebrew.

Year Five have enjoyed learning about Judaism. They've had opportunities to study the story of the Passover, explore the Seder plate and Kiddush Cup. They've also studied the Shema and made links to Christianity.
