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.
The Wednesday Word is a website which shares Sunday’s Gospel with parents and families. There are activities and games available too. To find out more, please follow the link below:
What is Mini Vinnies?
Mini Vinnies is a group of Key Stage two children who meet regularly to help those in need within our school and local community.
Mini Vinnies introduces children to social justice issues and to living faith through action as part of the St Vincent de Paul society.
What do Mini Vinnies do?
Our Mini Vinnies children meet to talk, share ideas and concerns and pray about doing good works in the community.
In July 2015 our Mini Vinnies children decided that they wanted to raise money and awareness for Rett Syndrome. They organised a cake sale and raised £200 for the Rett Syndrome Society. They also did research about Rett Syndrome and helped raise awareness through circle times and collective worship.
