Religious Education at St Teresa’s
As a Roman Catholic school, the Religious Education Curriculum at Saint Teresa’s is based upon the guidance given in the Religious Education Curriculum Directory, a document produced by the Bishops of England and Wales. All classes at Saint Teresa’s are taught through the “Come and See” Catholic Primary Religious Education as well as teaching the children about Catholic Social Teaching through Caritas in Action and Cafod Universal Church units.
Come and See is a programme that has been developed to respond to the needs of children today as they progress upon their faith journey, enabling them to grow in their religious literacy. At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives all children the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through scripture and tradition. The programme supports and enables the faith experience of all children because it starts with their real life experience and leads them to reflect upon and consider the Christian message in all its richness in that experience.
Come and See is developed through three themes which are gradually explored every term, each time at greater depths. These three themes are Church, Sacrament and Christian Living.
School & Parish work together in delivering the Sacramental Programme each year. As a Catholic school, this is of great importance to us and with the support from parents and families, children are equipped and prepared for a life of faith and commitment to Christ.
Parents with children in Year 3 or above are able to enrol their children on the Sacramental Programme. This runs for the full academic year and is led and delivered by Catechists from St Teresa’s Church. The Sacraments of Initiation are received by children on the programme. The Sacraments are; Reconciliation & First Holy Communion.
