Religious Education

The ‘Come And See’ programme was developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles.  It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the end of year Diocesan Expectations and the new Religious Education Curriculum Directory.

At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition. Throughout a pupil’s school journey they will each have the opportunity to explore different faiths and religions as part of this curriculum.

At St Joseph’s, our Sacramental Preparations take place in year 3 (or those who are 7 by December in year 2.  We work with the catechists from our three local parishes who deliver the Diocesan Sacramental Preparation Programme.
