‘At the heart of Catholic education lies the Christian vision of the human person. This vision is expressed and explored in religious education. Therefore, religious education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of the entire educational process. The beliefs and values studied in Catholic religious education inspire and draw together every aspect of the life of a catholic school. All pupils have the right to receive an overall education which will enable them, in the light of the faith of the Church, to engage with the deepest questions of life and to find reasons for the hope which is within them. Religious Education is, then, the core subject in a Catholic school.’
(Statement on Religious Education in Catholic School – Bishops’ Conference 2000)
“Excellence in religious education, then will be characterised by a clarity of succinct religious learning objectives and of key content, by appropriate methodologies, rigour, richness of resources, achievements of identified outcomes and accurate methods of assessment. Classroom R.E will be challenging educational engagement between the pupil, the teacher and the authentic subject material,”
Whilst evangelisation and catechesis are happening in our school for some pupils, the specific contribution Religious Education makes to the Catholic Life of the school is primarily educational and will be planned, taught, assessed and monitored with the same rigour as other curriculum subjects.
