Religious Education
at St. Thomas of Canterbury

“Religious Education is central to the curriculum of the Catholic school and is at the heart of the philosophy of Catholic education. Religious Education has developed in a way that reflects the particular identity of our Catholic schools in England and Wales.

It teaches about the faith in the context of a school which proclaims the Gospel, and invites the individual to respond to the message of Christ. As the individual responds to this invitation, growth in faith and knowledge helps the pupil to respond to the call to holiness and understand the fullness of what it is to be human.

For some, then, Religious Education will also be received as evangelisation and for some, catechesis.”

Religious Education Curriculum Directory (Bishops’ Conference, 2012), p.3
