Religious Education

Come and See Curriculum

The Come and See programme has been developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles. It is designed to support teachers in their delivery of religious education. It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Levels of Attainment and the new Religious Education Curriculum Directory.

At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition.

Come and See offers the opportunity to search, to explore, to discover, and to respond; this is part of what it is to be human.

Children Come and See the wonder of all that is within them and beyond them. God offers the invitation to Come and See. Teachers facilitate the opportunity for children to Come and See.

Relationships and Sex Education coverage within the new National Curriculum 2014 in areas of Science

The delivery of Sex Education takes place during the summer term throughout the academy from Reception, KS1, KS2 covering RSE using the programme, ‘Journey In Love’. All key stage members have a book and DVD, containing all the information for the year group they are teaching. Upper KS2, years 5 and 6, have the developed programme from Sr. Dorothy and deliver to the children.

 This programme looks very carefully into relationships between humans and how relationships are built up. From Reception learning about our features and how different we look to one another and how unique we are as individuals, to year 5 learning about their own bodies and how these change to year 6 learning about reproduction. Coverage of RSE within our academy blends in well and where applicable, all areas of study are followed in the new National Curriculum 2014. Each year group has some coverage of science. Overall, and very importantly, understanding that God as our creator, and each session will begin and end with a scripture reading, this is the utmost important factor throughout in our Catholic academy.
