Core RE

St Charles strives to support students to explore their own faith journey. We encourage them to reflect on their personal relationship with God and recognise the value of faith in other world religions. Students are encouraged to make links between the teachings of the Catholic faith and their everyday actions and decisions. We aim to challenge and inspire students to become religiously literate by giving them opportunities to put their faith in action.

The RE department provides a weekly compulsory lesson of core Religious Education to all Year 1 and Year 2 students. This consists of a structured programme where students are able to articulate in a verbal and written format. Modules delivered include: Catholic Social Teaching, Aid to the Church in Need, #Go2Mass, Forgiveness & Love and Social Action.

The outcome of excellent Religious Education is religiously literate and engaged young people who have the knowledge, understanding and skills - appropriate to their age and capacity - to reflect spiritually, and think ethically and theologically, and who are aware of the demands of religious commitment in everyday life
