Curriculum Intent

The RE Department at Cardinal Newman Catholic School aims to keep Christ at the centre of all that we do. Through our broad, ambitious and academic curriculum, we intend to support our students in knowing and understanding that they are ‘Made for Greatness’.

Our RE Department reflects the Catholic ethos of our school. Our curriculum is in line with the Bishops Conference Directory and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. We also endeavour to meet our students in their life situations and teach them of their faith and its relevance to life in the 21st century. We aim to develop our students as critical thinkers, instilled with a sense of dignity and worth. We aim to not only increase their knowledge but their awareness of themselves and God. Inclusive opportunities are provided in RE lessons, where students can reflect on the role of faith in their lives and experience moments of encountering God.

As RE teachers within the department at Cardinal Newman School, we must never forget our mission which is not only to educate but to bear witness to the Gospel of Christ in both our words and actions. Christ is at the centre of all that we do for our students and school community.
