Christ the King RC Primary School

Christ at the Heart Of All We Do

Religious Education

Statement of Intent RE

At Christ the King Roman Catholic Primary School, our Catholic faith and values define all that we do; they are in the ‘HEART’ of our school.  It is our intent for Religious Education to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage pupils. This will equip them with the knowledge and understanding to deepen their own Catholic faith, and their religious, theological, moral and social understanding. Through other subjects in the curriculum, the pupils will relate their beliefs and knowledge to daily life. We will also raise awareness of the faith, beliefs, traditions and values of other religious communities, in order to promote respect and understanding, and to prepare the pupils for adult life in our multi-cultural society.

At Christ the King we provide a curriculum and syllabus for religious education, which fulfils Diocesan recommendations and corresponds to the Curriculum Director for Catholic Schools. As part of the Salford Diocese, Christ the King follows the teaching of RE using the syllabus ‘Come and See’ and assessment is carried out following guidelines from the diocese. The RE curriculum is also supported by the scheme ‘Caritas in Action’.
