Religious Education

Our RE Co-ordinator is Mr Heeney.

Our Collective Worship Co-ordinator is Mrs Johnston.


We follow the Diocesan recommended 'Come and See' programme to deliver our RE curriculum.  

Throughout each term, we deliver three different RE units.  In addition to these, we also focus on other faiths during the year including Judaism and Islam.  Further information about our RE curriculum can be found on the diocesan website. 




 All Saints

(1st November)

We celebrate the lives of special and ordinary people who have responded to God’s invitation to love.


The commemoration of all the faithful departed (All Souls)

(2nd November)

Today and throughout the rest of November we pray for those who have died.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.


Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

(26th November)



(Begins 3rd December)

Advent means ‘coming’. We think of the coming of Jesus when he was born but we also think of his promise that he would come again at the end of time. It is a time of waiting and preparing. It is only in the last week of Advent that we focus upon the events to be celebrated at Christmas.


The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

(8th December)

This feast marks the first stage of the existence of Mary, the mother of Jesus. She was ‘full of grace’ from the very beginning and

co-operated with God throughout her life.


Christmas Day, The Nativity of the Lord

(25th December)

On this day we begin our celebration of the birth of Christ.
