RE and Worship

The teachings of the Catholic Church are at the centre of everything in our school.  We use  "God Matters", a  strategy approved by the Bishop of Plymouth.

10 Units are taught to fit in with the liturgical year. Other faiths are regularly included in our studies.  At least 10% of our curriculum time is spent on the teaching of RE.

As a Catholic community, we pray everyday, either as a class, Key Stage or whole school.  Children learn traditional prayers and also are given many opportunities to make up and say their own prayers.

Class Mass is celebrated regularly on a Wednesday's at 10.15 in our church by Father Ciaran, our parish priest.  Every half term, the whole school celebrates Mass in our Parish Church.
