Religious Education

All schools are required to teach Religious Education. In Catholic schools, Religious Education is considered a core subject accounting for 10% of all curriculum time. We follow the framework ‘Come and See’ recommended by the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle.

The children learn about Religion and in particular about the Catholic faith. They are encouraged to learn from Religion and in particular to develop their own relationship with God through prayer and reflection.

Children also learn about other faiths with a special focus on Judaism and Islam.
