Religious Education.


At St Francis Xavier, we follow the Come and See scheme. "Come and See" is an invitation and a promise of life for everyone. The invitation is open to all. In response to the question ‘Where do you live?’, Jesus invited the disciples to ‘Come and See.’ They went with Jesus ‘and spent the rest of that day with him.’


Religious Education is a core subject of the curriculum for Catholic Schools and as such teaching and learning in RE makes up 10% of curriculum time. As such it is taught rigorously with all the same expectations as other core subjects whilst maintaining a creative element and encouraging children to question and think at a high level.


Children all have a RE book where there Come and See learning is both treasured and shows high expectations for learning. We also engage in a collective worship each day where the children are provided with time to reflect and to learn Catholic values. In Early Years we cover various topics to immerse the children into the beginning of their religious journey.
