At Blessed Sacrament, religious learning and spiritual development is at the centre of all we do.
We are a Catholic school and follow a programme of religious learning, that adheres to the Religious Education Curriculum Directory.
Pupils are taught to value and respect people from all backgrounds and to understand that we have a responsibility to care for God's world and all those within it.
10% of the teaching timetable is dedicated to Religious Education. Please see the curriculum map and termly leaflets below for more information on what the children are learning and how you can support them. We follow the Dr Margaret Carswell Framework Model to deliver the RE curriculum and it is taught in a three year cycle, which links to the liturgical year. The content of this Model offers a systematic programme of study which comprehensively covers all the strands and requirements of the Curriculum Directory. Each topic plan sets out the areas taught from Revelation, Church, Celebration and Life in Christ ensuring progression and depth of provision.
As a Catholic school it is important that children are given the opportunity to live out their faith. Pupils take part in daily Collective Worship. Parents are invited to attend on Fridays, when classes are given an opportunity to lead worship and share their learning.
Throughout the school year a number of services and Masses are planned to celebrate or recognise particular feast days and liturgical seasons. We are always delighted to have parents and friends of Blessed Sacrament attend such occasions.
How You Can Help
As the first educators of your children, it is important that your children see you taking part in religious life. By attending Mass regularly with your children and supporting them in their school work, we can work together to provide a spiritually rich environment which enables your children to grow in the light and love of God.
