We teach Religious Education in line with the official syllabus in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle and use the ‘Come and See’ scheme of work throughout our school.
- Religious Education is taught discretely and developmentally.
- We engage with their own and others beliefs and values to help them develop good attitudes.
- We teach the pupils to engage with difficult questions and offer the children a strong sense of self worth.
The statements of the Curriculum Guidelines can and should be applied within the framework of the ‘Come and See’ Religious Education Programme. At St Mary’s, there are also other opportunities both within the R.E. framework and across all aspects of the school curriculum to explore and implement opportunities to be open, fair, inclusive and tolerant and our children learn to understand the world from other points of view and perspectives.
