RE Curriculum Intent
At St. Gabriel’s, Religious Education strives to create positive caring pupils through our scripture-based curriculum and Catholic social teaching. Catholic social teaching is underpinned by many principles such as: the dignity of the human person, working for the common good, stewardship of the planet, social and global issues, economy and leadership. RE, while part of every aspect of school life, has a distinct body of knowledge and skills. We want to help our pupils become ‘religiously literate young people who have the knowledge, understanding and skills to think spiritually, ethically and theologically.’* We see our children become respectful, understanding and empathetic young people, who stand up for the most vulnerable in society and strive to make the world a better place.
