St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Religious Education


The Mission of our school is to be a Christ centred community where the uniqueness of each individual is recognised and celebrated. We ensure staff and pupils feel loved and valued and that their full potential is realised within a secure, stimulating and happy environment.


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 peoples experiences and to relate 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 relevant curriculum map.

The Year of the Word 


The God who speaks

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has designated 2020 as the ‘The God Who Speaks: The Year of the Word’ to celebrate the 10th anniversary of verbum Domini-  Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’.  And 1600th anniversary of the death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.


Therefore, 2020 will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God’s word through a range of events, activities and resources, available across the dioceses of England and Wales.

 ‘Scripture is at the centre of everything the church does.  The Word of God shapes our prayer and worship.  The Bible shows us how to understand the world, how we are called to live and relate to each other.’



Pope Francis has announced 'The Year of St Joseph' will run until Advent 2021.


Prayer of St Joseph


Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil.  Amen.
