R.E. Curriculum

Religious Education at St Paul's Catholic Primary School


We pride ourselves on bringing our Religious curriculum to life through creative, vibrant and reflective lessons.  Our curriculum reaches far beyond this however.  The faith, hope and love we aspire to foster, develop and nurture within every child comes from a lived experience, an immersion in an atmosphere that recognises in all people and all experiences, the presence of God.


We 'move with the eyes of the  heart' and flourish when our goal is to bend down to help and love others.  In all that we do, say and achieve, we aim to: 'set the world on fire and be who God made us to be'; indeed to 'aspire not to have more but to be more'.
