Religious Education

At SS Peter & Paul's we believe that Religious Education is at the heart of our community, as we strive to proclaim the Gospel Values.  We see our role as supporting parents in leading their children to a greater understanding of who God is, to reflect spiritually and to celebrate with deeper faith and more understanding of the liturgy of the Church.

We believe that Religious Education provides children with opportunities to recognise, affirm and celebrate the gifts and talents they and others have been given and to develop the skills which will enable them to think and question more deeply and lead, ultimately to a greater understanding and appreciation of faith.  

We aim to make prayer worship and liturgy a real growth experience and to help develop the faith of each individual and their relationship with God.

At SSPP we teach the 'Come and See' Religious Education programme as recommended by the Diocese of Brentwood.  To enable parents to support the work we do in school, we publish a termly R.E. Curriculum Newsletter which outlines the topics being covered by each year group and suggests activities parents can undertake with their children at home.
