Religious Education

Our Religious Education curriculum aims to be ‘the core of the core curriculum’

(Pope John Paul II)

At St, Dunstan’s, we believe that religious education is at the heart of all we do and very much part of our everyday school life. The Religious Education curriculum enables us to fulfil and live out our mission statement. Through our curriculum and ethos we aim to support the children to develop their relationship with God.  

Through RE lessons, our children learn about the Catholic faith and develop their knowledge and understanding of life as a Catholic. Children are given the opportunity to examine their own religious beliefs and attitudes, as well as to develop respect and understanding of other faiths. They also learn about how they can use their faith to have a positive impact on the lives of those around them – both now and in the future.

In addition to our school liturgies, our parish priests and chaplains support our RE curriculum by visiting the classes to talk about the sacraments of Baptism and Ordination, as well as church teaching.

Our parish church is close by, enabling us to regularly take our children there to teach them about faith and tradition while also attending parish Masses with our KS2 children.
