Religious Education

The God Matters scheme, recommended by the Diocese of Portsmouth, provides the basis of our school R.E. Curriculum. Each teacher plans and adapts ideas based on the interests and ability of the class.


The themes link to the Liturgical calendar and follow a yearly cycle. its themes are evident throughout the school; in the school’s entrance area, the classrooms, the school hall, pupils’ books and in class big books.


We recognise that children come from a range of Faith backgrounds and the curriculum is differentiated according to prior knowledge and  ability.


For pupils from a strong faith background, it is a chance for their faith to grow and deepen, for some it will be a chance to develop some knowledge of their faith and for some it will be the first opportunity they will have had to hear the Gospel message.
