Holy Family Catholic Primary School


A Holy Family Theologian can articulate what it means to belong to the family of God, understands the responsibility of discipleship and constantly seeks to encounter with God. Through Building the Kingdom, they will be inspired to be the leaders of tomorrow such as those which we study in class.

Our school is a Catholic community of faith whose main task is to help our children know, understand and participate more fully in the life of the church and also to appreciate the spiritual and religious dimensions in life as expressed in the Catholic faith tradition.  Children reflect on what it means to have faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding.


RE presents our pupils with the same academic demands and challenges as any other curriculum area.


It promotes knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith; its relevance to the ultimate questions of life and the skills required to engage in religious thinking.


The basic content of our scheme of work has as its point of reference the Religious Education Curriculum Directory.  We follow the programme “The Way, the Truth and the Life”.


The broad areas with which RE is concerned are:


Life in Jesus

The Church



The RE curriculum (and the whole curriculum at Holy Family) is enriched and enhanced by two programmes that focus on Catholic Social Teaching: Caritas in Action and Building the Kingdom.


Other faiths are taught throughout the curriculum and during the annual multi-faith week.


RE is assessed in Terms 2, 4 and 6 against the national outcomes.
