Key Information

Mission Statement

Vision

We recognise that Christ is at the centre of our school and the teaching of Religious Education is at the heart of the curriculum and ethos of St Paul and St Timothy’s Catholic Infant School. This permeates through every aspect of school life. We believe that, through example and teaching, our children will come to know of God’s love and compassion for everyone, and work towards living by the Gospel values following the example that Jesus gave us to “Love one another as I have loved you.”  We hope to foster a sensitive and reflective attitude to life.

We firmly believe that

“Our school is a place where we Love, Learn, Believe and Achieve  together in the spirit of Jesus”

 

The aim of Religious Education in St Paul and St Timothy’s Catholic Infant School is to provide a programme that takes into account the religious and educational needs of all our children. It is a collaborative activity, which respects and promotes the child’s innate capacity for wonder, awe and reverence i.e. for the ‘spiritual’.

Our aims are:

 

  • For RE to be a core subject central to the life of our school, taught discreetly and developmentally.

  • To present engagingly a comprehensive content which is the basis of knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith.

 

  • To respect the child’s innate capacity for awe, wonder, reverence and imagination and to enable them to think critically about questions for meaning and purpose.

 

  • To support our children in taking their first steps on their faith journey.

 

  • To teach the Catholic faith and to foster commitment to that faith.

 

  • To raise pupils’ awareness of the faith and traditions of other religious communities in order to respect and understand them.

 

  • To encourage the children in a loving and caring attitude toward family, friends, classmates, teachers and all with whom they come in contact.

 

  • To enable pupils to relate the knowledge gained through Religious Education to their understanding of other subjects in the curriculum.

 

  • To bring clarity to the relationship between faith and life, and between faith and culture.

 

  • To celebrate through worship and liturgy in a way appropriate to their age.
