St Mary's Catholic Primary School


Religious Education

Religious Education is central to the educative mission of the Church. At St Mary's it is the 'the core of the core curriculum'. We follow the diocesan guidelines and framework for the teaching of Religious Education and implement the 'Come and See' RE programme across the school. We ensure that a minimum of 10% curriculum time is allocated for RE teaching across all key stages.


The Come and See programme is developed through three themes which are explored each time at greater depth:

  • Church 
  • Sacraments 
  • Christian Living


Throughout each term, three units of work are delivered which follow the themes. Each unit lasts for four weeks and is structured into these aspects:

  • Explore
  • Reveal
  • Respond
Left Shape


  • There are no events for the next 10 weeks.

'Living, learning, caring together with God beside us.'

At St Mary's our mission is to be a community which offers the best possible education based on Christian values.
