The following strategies and aims underpin the effective delivery of ReligiousEducation at Holy Spirit Catholic school.


  • Religious education will be taught discretely and developmentally.  It will include the deepening of knowledge, and understanding of key theological ideas and their application to life.
  • Ample opportunities will be offered for children to apply and use their knowledge and skills in cross-curricular studies to deepen their understanding of religious truths and think creatively.
  • Engagement with their own and others’ beliefs and values will help to develop good attitudes and dispositions so that children are instilled with a love of learning and a desire to go on learning.
  • Engagement with difficult questions of meaning and purpose which everyone has to face will enable them to think critically about their own questions of meaning and purpose.
  • Offer the children a sense of self-worth through their experience of belonging to a caring community and an awareness of the demands of religious commitment in everyday life.
