Catholic Life of the School

Our pupils take pride in their faith and live out the Church’s teachings through their words and actions. This includes welcoming, including and celebrating pupils who have different beliefs. They have an acute understanding of what’s right and wrong. They achieve happiness through self-respect and respect for others. They embrace and understand their own community and are always curious and interested in the wider community and how they can contribute to a better world for all.

Throughout the year they direct and contribute to our learning environment, acts of worship, charitable activities, fund-raising, and celebrations all of which develop the Catholic character of our school and prepare them for their lives beyond the school gates.

Religious Education

The school recognises the importance of children having a sound understanding of their faith, its stories, teachings and practices. The school follows the “Come and See” scheme of work which is approved by the Diocese of Southwark. Religion lessons aim to inspire and engage pupils, developing their understanding and skills whilst recognising the unique nature of the subject and the importance of cultivating a sense of awe and wonder. Inclusion is an important part of all of our teaching and learning and pupils achieve highly in Religious Education and making good progress both during the year and throughout their time at the school.

Collective Worship

Pupils participate in a wide variety of collective worship throughout each week including whole school, phase and class acts of worship. We also encourage pupils to take time for prayer and reflection on a more personal level and provide opportunities for larger celebrations with the wider school and church community. Our pupils are reverent and reflective at times of Collective Acts of Worship. The pupils are knowledgeable about their faith, which they act upon visibly through prayer and worship. Children lead acts of collective worship throughout the year and plan and carry out their own acts of collective worship.
