Religious Education

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.

‘St Anthonys’s delivers excellent RE teaching. I was very pleased to hear about my sons progress in the report. I like hearing about what the children have been learning about in the weekly newsletters. It has been lovely to be invited to various events throughout the year’- Parent Voice.


Termly newsletters are sent out to all parents to let them know what topics we are covering and special dates that you can celebrate at home whilst the children discuss them at school. Please see the below for the our termly newsletters.
