St Gabriel’s RC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff, governors and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. For more information please see our safeguarding policy which can be found under Key Information > Policies > Safeguarding Policy.
Religion is taught in accordance with RE Curriculum Directory using the Diocesan approved scheme 'Come and See.' Lessons take many different formats, with children's work being produced as written work, comprehension, acts of worship, presentations, drama, music, dance and art.
Children are taught in 4 week 'blocks' throughout the year. In the first week, we listen to the word of God and introduce our new theme. During the next two weeks we explore and reveal and finally, children respond in the last week.
There are nine themes throughout the year and these are:
1. Domestic Church - Family
2. Baptism/Confirmation - Belonging
3. Advent/Christmas - Loving
4. Local Church - Community
5. Eucharist - Relating
6. Lent/Easter - Giving
7. Pentecost - Serving
8. Reconciliation - Inter-relating
9. Universal Church - World
We also follow 'Statements to Live By,' which give us a weekly focus for discussion and reflection. Each class takes turns to present an act of worship based on the week's 'Statement' during our Friday Celebration Assembly.
We welcome all parents and members of the Parish to join us.
