RE Curriculum

"Religious education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of the entire educational process. The beliefs and values studied in Catholic religious education inspire and draw together every aspect of the life of a Catholic school." 
(Statement from the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, May 2000)

Religious education in Catholic schools aims to promote:

  • knowledge and understanding of Catholic faith and life;
  • knowledge and understanding of the response of faith to the ultimate questions about human life, its origin and purpose;
  • the skills required to engage in examination of and reflection upon religious belief and practice.


At Holy Cross we aim to deliver a broad and engaging Religious Education, enriched in the Catholic Ethos of the school community. To support the delivery of our RE curriculum we use the support materials of God Matters.


From September 2018, 

We are no longer using assessment levels
Outcome Statements are now based on skills not content
There is now more than one opportunity to meet each skill
•There are now 3 attainment criteria
This is a pilot for 2/3 years

In Term 6 our Religious Education topic is Sacraments. We will also spent this term learning about other faiths, particularly in relation to International week.


Please see the below document for outcomes in R.E. in the Clifton Diocese, based on the God Matters scheme of work.
