St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Religious Education

We believe Religious growth and development have a central place and significance in each human life and must not only be confined to timetabled religious education lessons but be the core of the whole school experience.


Aims of Religious Education

  • To encourage the growth and development of children's personal and spiritual lives through the study of religious education.

  • To enable the children to reflect on their own and other peoiples experiencesand to relatre the religious teachings encountered to issues and choices in their own lives.

  • To give the children a knowledge and understanding of what it means to be a Christian as expressed in the catholic tradition.

  • To develop an understanding of and a respect for other faith traditions and be able to recognise common religious themes such as the significance of water, light and oil etc, sympathetic to all faiths.



At St Teresa's we use a Religious Education programme called 'Come and See' as directed by Liverpool Archdiocese.

Through out the school we all explore the same themes at the same time but each year group will approach the theme through a different topic.

Each class has a 'Come and See' display board and a Collective Worship prayer focus table.

Collective Worship provides opportunities for learners and staff to come together to worship God.


'Where two or three meet in my name I am there among them' (Mt 18:20)


Children have the opportunity to take part in daily Collective Worship. Each week we all explore the same theme.

Each class also has their own Curriculum Map each half term. This has a dedicated R.E section explaining in a little more detail what your child will be learning this half term. Click below to go to the 'Classes' page and select a class to view the relevent curriculum map.
