Religion at St Cuthbert's Primary
Religious Education is a core subject at St Cuthbert’s.
As a Catholic School, Religious Education is a core subject. We have a weekly programme of prayer and worship and regular class assemblies and masses to which parents are invited. We follow the Come and See Religious Education Programme which is recommended by the Bishops of England and Wales. 10% of teaching time is spent on religious education this equals 2.30hours per week.
RE - Recording of children’s work takes many forms – pictorial, written, wall displays, assemblies etc. Each classroom has an RE area with display boards and a focus area for prayer.
All children complete work in a special Religion book. Children’s knowledge is assessed and levelled throughout the year. We assess children’s knowledge of beliefs, teachings and sources, celebrations and rituals, social and moral practices and way of life, engagement with their own and others’ beliefs and values and engagement with questions of meaning and purpose.
RE lessons follow the agreed syllabus for the Cardiff Archdiocese - Come and See. The Religion lessons we teach at St Cuthbert’s gives children the chance to explore and deepen their understanding of what it means to be a Catholic today. As we are a Catholic school, the particular emphasis is on Christianity but we value the richness and diversity of our local area and community and the diversity of our school.
The children study the same 9 themes throughout the year in all the classes but content and delivery differs by age and stage.
The Come and See Programme encourages children to reflect on the Catholic faith and make links to how the Gospel is lived out in our daily lives.
Throughout the year, we plan for FAITH WEEKS where pupils can compare and find similarities in different faiths. The FAITH WEEKS include a focus on ISLAM, JUDAISM, HINDUISM and CHRISTIANITY.
Parents and Carers are very welcome to come to school to view the Come and See material we use.
