The RE scheme taught in school is “The Way, the Truth and the Life”.

We currently do not have arrangements for parents to withdraw their children from Religious Education lessons.


Preparation for the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist commences at the age of 7+ for all children who are Baptised and whose parents are prepared to support them through this time of preparation. The Sacramental programme of preparation is undertaken in school.
