Religious Education (RE) at St. Paul's
At St. Paul’s we believe that religious education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of the entire educational process. We believe Religious Education is, then, the core subject in a Catholic school. Religious education contributes to evangelisation and catechesis but its specific contribution to the Catholic Life of the school is primarily educational and so Religious Education will be planned, taught, assessed and monitored with the same rigour as other curriculum subjects.
We understand Religious Education to be the systematic study of the mystery of God and of Jesus Christ, of the Church, and of the central beliefs which Catholics hold. We follow The Way the Truth and the Life RE scheme throughout all key stages.
