'Living and Growing as the People of God' is the curriculum strategy for Religious Education in the Diocese of Birmingham.
The RE strategy provides a curriculum that addresses pupils' intellect, hearts and imagination. It covers a systematic study of Catholic faith and life and makes learning about our faith lively, interactive and relevant.
Its content also provides the foundations for a partnership between school, home and parish, a partnership that lies at the centre of Catholic Education.
There are numerous opportunities for cross curricular activities that link with and often stem from RE lessons. We make active links within our parish and local community, we visit places of worship and we invite people to speak about their faith.
At St John's, RE is not one single subject among many, but the foundation of all that we aim to learn and live out each day.
