How do we Implement Religious Education?

Children walk into an R.E lesson and it instantly feels special. A key focal point (for example an artefact, candle, image to provoke thoughts) greets the children with calm music and prepares the children for the start of their learning. Teachers use the Come and See Programme of Religious Education as their main resource that they then develop and enhance to meet the needs of their children and create exciting and engaging lessons.

Central to the programme are three basic human questions and the three Christian beliefs that are the Church’s response in faith:

Where do I come from? Life – Creation

Who am I? Dignity – Incarnation
Why am I here? Purpose – Redemption ...within the Catholic tradition


We look at other religions around the world, at different points in the year. These are:

Autumn Term - Judaism

Spring Term - Hinduism

Summer Term - Islam
