Welcome to Religious Education

We Follow the Come and See RE Scheme

“In the life of faith of the Catholic school, Religious Education plays a vital part.” (Religious Education in Catholic Schools, Bishops’ Conference, 2000). At the heart of Catholic Education lies the Christian vision of the human person. This vision is explored and expressed in Religious Education; therefore, Religious Education is the foundation of the entire education process. At St. Paul’s, Religious Education is "the core of the core" (Pope John Paul II), at the heart of everything we do.


RE is not only a discrete subject of the highest importance at St Paul's. Throughout our curriculum is woven the exploration of Catholic Social Teachings:



The common good

The option for the poor


Care for creation

The dignity of work and participation


Distributive Justice


Children are challenged to answer meaningful questions relating to all topics based on these teachings and consider how they affect our world today and the lives of Catholics around the world.
