Religious Education

At Our Lady's R.E is one of the core subjects and as such it has a prominence on the school timetable.  Along with other CAST schools we use the Come and See Curriculum and we are moving, with guidance, over to the Religious Education Directory (RED).  Available on the link below:-
As well as formal R.E lessons the children also have unlimited interactions with God.  We have daily prayer times as well as Acts of Worship four times a week.
Throughout the year we celebrate Mass at St Mary's Church, with the children playing active roles in the celebrations.  Parents and friends are always welcome to these.
Mrs Cohen is the lead for R.E in the school and works closely with advisers and colleagues from CAST to ensure we are always striving to enhance to Catholic Life of the school.  If you would like to discuss any aspect of the Catholic Life of the school please contact either Mr Meech, Miss Wilby or Mrs Cohen on the main school number.

sdc.me.uk – worksheets and prayer/liturgy resources which can be printed onto A4 paper and can easily be used at home with children without a need for huge amounts of pre-knowledge or information.


Suggestion to look at St Patrick’s Breastplate it gives an excellent summary, through a simple prayer, of how many of us would want a conversation with Our Lord to go;

 Christ with me,

Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ beside me,

Christ be in me,

Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ on my right hand,

Christ on my left hand,

Christ with me when I lie down,

Christ with me when I sit down,

Christ with me when I arise,

Christ in the heart of every person who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ in every ear that hears me,



Guardian Angel’s prayer –

 Angel of God, my guardian dear,

To whom God’s love commits me here,

Ever this day, be at my side,

To light and guard, rule and guide – Amen
