Religious Education is central to the life of the school. We follow the National Programme “The Way, The Truth and The Life” which covers nine topics each year. The programme is used from Nursery to Y6. We commit 10% of our teaching time to RE.
Each day collective worship takes place in class with prayers and time for reflection. Children are invited through the Parish to receive the Sacraments of Forgiveness and Holy Communion in Year 3. The children are supported in school through ongoing work in the RE programme.
The whole school community meets for assembly on Monday and Friday. All classes take turns in leading an assembly which is linked to the Here I Am programme. Juniors have class Masses to which parents and parishioners are invited. We attend Mass regularly at St. Theresa’s Parish Church both on Sundays and on special school days throughout the year.
Fr Jim Kenny, our Parish Priest, comes to school regularly to talk to the children and share in our assemblies. He provides the children with opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Forgiveness during Lent and Advent and at other times during the year on request.
