Religious Education

For further information on the Catholic Life of the School, please click here.

Here at St Joseph's, we deliver our RE lessons with the support of the Diocesan recommended scheme, The Way, The Truth and The Life. This scheme teaches and supports the children with the principles of the Catholic faith. The scheme offers some interactive activities to support the learning in school, which we encourage you to view with your child.

Since September 2014, we have also expanded on our RE Curriculum by using the CAFOD Universal Church modules to supplement the curriculum. These topics help to teach our children about global justice issues, and how they can put their faith into action in order to build a just and fair world.

For further information on what is taught in each year group, follow the links below.
