Religious Education is the golden thread that runs through our school curriculum. In Religious Education lessons and the Catholic life of the school, we teach our children to know and understand the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church so that they may know God and themselves better.
We foster strong links with our Parishes, our Diocese, our local Catholic schools and members of our local and international community to enrich the lives of our children. Our children understand that they are stewards of the earth, respecting our school environment, our planet and all those who share it.
The children at St Michael's experience a rich Catholic life through daily prayer and reflection, collective worship, the singing of hymns and celebrating Holy feast days throughout the liturgical year.
Our pupils take an active role in the Catholic life of the school with pupil-led worship and a team of Liturgy Leaders organising and leading masses and prayer services. The Followers are a group of pupils that meet to explore their faith and share it with their peers.
Our Religious Education is challenging and rigourous, allowing our pupils to develop a deep subject knowledge of their Catholic faith and the faith of other religions such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
Our Catholic virtues inform our expectations and rules for the positive relationship we have together at school. These are displayed and referred to throughout the school.
We want our pupils to become religiously literate young people who have understanding of the Catholic faith revealed through Scripture, Tradition, doctrine, prayers and Christian living.
