Religious Education Curriculum

Religious Education

Religious Education is taught at Sacred Heart School using the ‘Come and See’ scheme of work. This scheme of work has been developed 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.

The scheme is designed to support teachers in their delivery of religious education. It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Levels of Attainment and the 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’ is based on the four Constitutions of the Second Vatican Council:

Revelation: God Speaks – finding meaning in life

Church: Christ is the light of the nations – Community of Earth

Christian Living; Joy and Hope – Way of life

Sacraments: Liturgy: Celebration – celebration in symbol and ritual

‘Come and See’ has been developed through three themes based around their Constitutions. The themes are gradually explored at greater depth – they are Church, Sacrament and Christian Living.
