The Catholic School
St Patrick’s is a Catholic school and as such we celebrate our identity as Christian people promoting those values which provide a Catholic, Christian setting which enables our children to grow in faith, love and understanding and to develop key qualities such as honesty, trust and respect for each other.
The R.E. Curriculum in class
Our R.E. Scheme is called ‘The Way, The Truth and The Life’. It explores the life of Jesus and our lives as Christian people. It also looks in detail at sacramental life and prayer.
The scheme also looks at inspirational people and other world religions so that our children grow in understanding of the world around them and their place as Christians in that world.
On important days in the year, such as Ash Wednesday or Holy Days, we celebrate by having Mass in school or walking the older children to church. We also have regular assemblies and hymn practices.
R.E. - The Curriculum around the school
In school we seek to foster and atmosphere which encourages achievement, motivation, initiative, self-worth, co-operation and communication and which makes prayer and liturgy meaningful and relevant. We encourage our children to show good manners, respect and love for one another and the staff are encouraged to model this in their relationships with the children also.
