Whole School Curriculum
Programme of Study
As a Roman Catholic school, the Religious Education Curriculum at St Gilbert’s is based upon the guidance given in the Religious Education Curriculum Directory, a document produced by the Bishops of England and Wales. All classes at St Gilbert’s are taught through the “Come and See” Catholic Primary Religious Education Programme.
Come and See is a programme that has been developed to respond to the needs of children today as they progress upon their faith journey, enabling them to grow in their religious literacy. At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives all children the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through scripture and tradition. The programme supports and enables the faith experience of all children because it starts with their real life experience and leads them to reflect upon and consider the Christian message in all its richness in that experience.
