As a Catholic School, the Religious Education we provide conforms to the doctrines of the Catholic Church. Religious Education is taught according to the syllabus approved by the Archdiocese of Liverpool. It is called ‘Come and See’.
Each term a Come and See newsletter will be given to parents to update them on what is being taught.
If you have any questions about Come and See, please contact your child’s class teacher.

We justify our existence as a Catholic school by offering the children a curriculum based on good education practice in an environment based on Gospel values.
Throughout all aspects of Religious education we aim to involve the children in active participation in prayer, worship and liturgical celebrations.
The periods of collective worship help us to underline our school aims and allow us to celebrate the place of Christ in our school life. The school has no specific arrangements for the withdrawal of pupils from religious teaching or worship.
The School has an agreed policy for Education in Personal Relationships which contains arrangements for teaching Sex Education. Children’s sex education is based on Christian principles and is related to the stage of their development as they move through the School.
The children receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation in Year 4. Within the programme of sacramental preparation emphasis is placed on the shared responsibility between home, school and Parish.
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Statement
As a Catholic school, we are required to teach RSE in accordance with the teaching of the Church. RSE is part of the Mission of Catholic schools to educate the whole person. It seeks to inform young people in preparation for adult life.
RSE is the life-long learning about physical, social and emotional development. It is the understanding of the importance of marriage, for family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It forms a part of the PSHE, RE and Science Curriculum. Our key objective as a school is the well-being of the child.
