As a Catholic Primary school, the basic religious ethos is to be found across the whole curriculum and not just within the Religious Education timetable. The whole aim of the school is the Christian growth of the children, not simply their growth in their faith but their growing awareness of the world as a maturing Christian. The Religious Education programme incorporates the Curriculum Directory for Catholic Schools (Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales). Preparation and instructions for the reception of the sacraments are given at the appropriate times with the co-operation of the parents. The children take part in school masses to which parents are invited.
