Religious Education is central to all we do; it is the reason for our school’s existence. We aim to help the children deepen their understanding of the beliefs, values and practices of the Catholic faith. Our R.E lessons are planned to the Bishops’ curriculum directory. We use a range of different plans and resources in order to fulfil the requirements of the curriculum directory. Besides this formal curriculum, we ensure that these values and beliefs are central to all that happens in our school permeating all aspects of the curriculum. We also encourage the children to respect and form an understanding of the religious beliefs of others. We teach R.E through discussion, role-play, reflection, prayer and music.
A letter from Pope Francis:
In the Summer term 2017 Year 3 Lisbon received a letter from Pope Francis thanking them for their kind card. They had written to the Pope earlier in the year thanking him for being such a good role model and explaining to him what they admire about his work.

Displays, class worship and assemblies:
In 2018, we held an art exhibition. The theme was ‘The Cross’. Each class had to think of their own unique ways to represent The Cross and what it stood for.
