Religious Education


As a Catholic school, religion is not just another subject in the curriculum, but it is a way of life. It permeates all relationships and activities.

The Governors have agreed that the delivery of religious education at St Philomena’s will be in accordance with Diocesan Policy and is sustained through close links with the home and parish. We are following the ‘Way, the Truth and the Life' Religious Education Programme. This programme aims to encourage children’s awareness of the presence of God and to help them respond to that presence.

Religious Education also happens through regular prayer, assemblies and Masses. Fr Cyriacus celebrates school and class Masses on occasions throughout the year.  Hymns and music are used to enhance all our worship.

Underlying our teaching and our relationships are the Gospel values of Honesty and Humility, Justice, Forgiveness and Mercy.  Our aim within this context is that all members of our community show respect and care for one another and extend their concern to the needy by prayer and charitable service.
