St Bridget's Curriculum

Teaching has an extraordinary moral depth and is one of our most excellent and creative activities. For the teacher does not write on inanimate material, but on the very spirits of human beings.’
Congregation for Catholic Education, The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millenium.

At St Bridget’s the Catholic ethos of the school permeates the whole curriculum.

“The curriculum, in all its aspects, must reflect the fact that Christ is the foundation of the whole educational enterprise in a Catholic School.”

(The Catholic School para.33)

The aim is to nurture a quality, caring supportive Christian environment in which all pupils are healthy, positive, confident and independent and reach their full potential as active members of society. To achieve this we provide a quality education which involves a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, a creative and enjoyable skills based curriculum, a curriculum which
acknowledges the uniqueness of each individual. R.E. is considered as the core subject in a Catholic School.

“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.”

Religious Education Curriculum Directory for Catholic Schools 2012

“Catholic schools are guided in all they do by an important and coherent vision of education.
This vision is based on the truth revealed by God about ourselves, our life together in community
and our ultimate destiny with God. This gives rise to an educational endeavor centered on the
person of Jesus Christ, who is our Way, Truth and Life”.


To fulfil our aims and objectives of Religious Education we use the ‘Come and See’ programme of Religious Education for the children in Key Stage 1 and the 'To know You more clearly' curriculum in EYFS as recommended by the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
 There are clear objectives and learning outcomes for each year group, allowing pupils to work at the appropriate level for their understanding and stage of development.
