Religious Education

At St Agatha’s school, prayer is a vital part of the school day.  The children begin and end the day with a prayer and say a thank you prayer before eating their lunch. 

The Religious Education scheme used at St Agatha’s is called The Way, the Truth and the Life.  It runs from Nursery to Year 6 and provides continuity and progression for each child.  The scheme allows children to discover the beauty of the Catholic faith in both an engaging and child-friendly way.  Each year group has its own Religious Education text books and children have the opportunity to explore different parts of the Mass, the saints, the Sacraments and different aspects of liturgical life.  There is a website linked to the scheme which has a Guidance for Parents section, which you can click here to access.

During the school year, there are many whole school Masses and each class has the chance to celebrate either a year group Mass at St Agatha’s church (Year 2 - Year 6) or a Prayer Service in class (Reception & Year 1). 

We are excited to share with you that we are establishing a ‘GIFT’ (Growing In Faith Together) team. This team will be supported by Mrs Wood (our RE subject Leader) and will comprise of one child from each of the classes in KS1 and KS2.

The purpose of the team, and role that they will play in our school community, is outlined in the presentations below. There is also an application form, for children to complete, if they would like to be part of this new initiative – please note the closing dates.
