Religious Education Intent


At Holy Trinity we continually strive to develop the full potential of the school community in an environment permeated by the Catholic Faith and promoting Gospel values. At the heart of our mission is the family, school and parish, each supporting and working in mutual cooperation for the benefit of the children.


‘In every child’s heart there is a space that only God can fill’ - St Thomas Aquinas


Our RE Curriculum Intent is summarised as follows:


  • To develop children’s knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith
  • To give children the skills to enable them to examine, reflect and question upon religious beliefs and practise
  • To develop knowledge of other faiths and beliefs, in order to help respect and understand them
  • To provide opportunities for each child to develop a personal relationship with God


Religious Education Implementation


To fulfill the above curriculum intent and aims and to address the four areas of study outlined in the Religious Education Curriculum Directory, 2012 – Revelation, Church, Celebration and Life in Christ - the ‘Come and See’ programme is used as recommended by the Diocese.


Religious Education is taught through the process of Explore, Reveal, Respond. This follows the pattern of: the human search for meaning, God’s initiative in Revelation and the response in faith.
